Are there any free Sinhalese Dhamma books for free? Most free sites have English books.

Only here I find

Don't know about Sinhalese, but I have ordered from the site you quoted above, and although it takes
awhile to get to the USA, I'm very impressed with the quality of the material they send. Especially the
hard bound editions of the Digha Nikaya and Majjhima Nikaya.
Now having obtained a precious human body,
I do not have the luxury of remaining on a distracted path.

Hi Blue Lotus

Do you know http://www.metta.lk/ ? On the Tipitaka section, they have suttas in sinhalese.

Thank you friend. I am not sinhalese. This is for friend. Simple books are fine since he is not into sutta a lot. I look for General dhamma books and chanting kind of books.
