"A unique memoir blending personal history, cultural development in Canada over five decades, philosophical explorations and a distinctively powerful reading of Buddhism. This is a book to be read carefully and joyfully!” “Suwanda Sugunasiri’s Memoir is more than an autobiography. Written by a man who defies categorization, it is a document of Canadian society transforming itself from what was in many ways still a polyglot British colony into a committed multicultural community. Its protagonist is a Sinhalese Sri Lankan immigrant, carrying his deeply ingrained native culture and religion to his new home in the west...What gave his contributions (to Canada and multiculturalism) their unique value was his remaining firmly rooted in the principles and practice of Buddhism, so that whatever he offered in advocacy or criticism was always advanced in the spirit of toleration, with understanding and with friendly good humour.” —Foreword by Professor Lionel Steiman, Senior Scholar, Department of History, University of Manitoba
