This Sinhala recension of the Anagatavamsa, here translated into English for the first time, is but one of the several texts forming a genre of Buddhist apocalyptic literature generated by the Cult of Maitreya in South and South-East Asia. It is a prophetic text revealing a rich religious imagination that focuses upon the advent of the future Buddha in a time when those who have long perserved in the religious quest will gain an opportunity to realise the highest spritual attainment.

This book was added to South Asia bookstore on Tuesday 25 January, 2011.
