Abstract:
Dharmapradipikava(Dhpd) of Gurulugomi claims a most outstanding place in Sinhalese literature both in its subject matter and linguistic content. The other name given to this work by its author is MAHĂ„BODHIVAMSA-PARIKATHAVA as may be seen from the colophon. Dhpd (a torch of religious truths) is the special name of this work given eulogistically by its author as an estimate of its value in expounding Buddhist Doctrine, and Mahabodhi-vamsaparikathava is the ordinary name explanatory of its nature as it is based on the Pali prose work Mahabodhivamsa (MBV).
