Brahmasamhara, Yogi
This is a book on meditation that takes people beyond where most other such books have taken them. It is a book of wisdom - wisdom for its understanding of human nature, wisdom for its answers to the unhappiness in modern life, and wisdom for the person-to-person way in which it is written. Among the numerous books written about meditation, this one jumps out - the author is a boy from the country who knows the modern way of life and its stresses and distresses first hand. The book is practical, easy to read and comprehensive. It is written in a warm, gentle, easy-to-follow manner. The author mixes the text with humorous stories about his Masters and drawn from his own life. 296pp.

Foreward By Kumaratunga, H. E. Chandrinka Bandaranaike
216pp.Monara Rising, the history of civil aviation in Sri Lanka, published to coincide with the 25th anniversary of SriLankan, is the first book tracing the history of aviation in Sri Lanka. Utilising archival materials and anecdotal evidence from those who have been part of this extraordinary era, the title traces a story of triumph over adversity. From the early struggles of Air Ceylon to 2005, when the SriLankan group was the most profitable corporation on the island, it is a story filled with colour. The birth of aviation in what was then known as Ceylon came in 1912, but it was the Second World War that first made Ceylon a focal point for aviation. The island was a centre for Royal Air Force operations. Its basic airstrip was to play a key role in one of the pivotal battles of the war on 5 April 1942. Churchill stated: "The most dangerous moment of the War, and the one which caused me the greatest alarm, was when the Japanese Fleet was heading for Ceylon and the naval base there. The capture of Ceylon, the consequent control of the Indian Ocean, and the possibility at the same time of a German conquest of Egypt would have closed the ring and the future would have been black."
