Sylvia Bay is highly qualified to read between the lines of scriptures and arrive in sound conclusions. As she holds a B.A. (Hons.) first class in Buddhist Studies from the Buddhist and Pali University Sri Lanka, a B.Soc.Sci.

She also taught Buddhist studies at the Buddhist and Pali College of Singapore for almost 15 years, and has regularly given talks at Buddhist forums on Buddhist history, social aspects of Buddhism and application of Buddhism to daily life.

Between The Lines An Analytical Appreciation of the Buddha s Life The Combined Book Edition by Sylvia Bay 1 page 001

The Buddha lived over 2500 years ago.  Generations of devoted followers have shared wonderous tales of magic to celebrate Buddha’s life and achievements and to inspire faith.  

Over time followers have lost sight of who the real man was.

This book seeks to bring the historical Buddha back into the popular psyche.  This story is as intriguing and more inspiring than any talk of magic and fantasy.

The writer is not assuming either the role of a Buddhist apologetic or an intellectual bull fighter. She is a sober intellectual, well-disciplined in systematic research techniques and motivated by genuine interest in portraying the Buddha who really lived. Every right thinking Buddhist should congratulate her effort to appreciate the ‘real’ Buddha through systematic vipassana.
