“My physique developed in the same way that the bodies of other Sinhala villagers grew. My mind developed in a different way. I did not obtain education from a prestigious school or a pundit. Knowledge came to me from the books I read and through my lived experiences. The teacher who read me my first letter from an ola leaf manuscript was not a man versed in Sanskrit and Pali. In fact he did not even have a strong command of Sinhala. Benefitting from the experience of having taught the village children their letters for years, he was an old man who was a good teacher. He won my respect and love and that of my parents and sisters by teaching children letters patiently, joyfully and with a sense of calm control.”

From his autobiography උපන්දා සිට (From the Beginning)
