The Life and Work of Buddhaghosa

Buddhaghosa was a famous Buddhist scholar who studied in the 5th century AD at the Great Monastery at Anuradhapura, Sri Lanka. There he discovered many Sinhalese Buddhist commentaries which he translated into the Pali language. He also wrote The Path of Purification (Visuddhi-magga), which is regarded as the most authentic guide to the Theravada Buddhist Tradition in Southeast Asia. This book is a thorough Study of the life and work of this great Buddhist scholar.
