A native of Sri Lanka, the Methodist pastor, Lynn A. de Silva is without doubt one of the pioneers of dialogue between Christians and Buddhists, both by his theological writings and by his activities in his native country and in the broader context of the Ecumenical Council of Churches. His thought focuses on the conception of the soul, the self and the question of God, but also highlighting the ethical and spiritual implications of these questions. The centenary of his birth invites us to make him better known.
