The first Asian novel on the internet
Saadhu.com was launched in October 1998, as home of the 'the saadhu testament', a novel written by the Sri Lankan author daya dissanayake. After it's publication it was found to be the First Electronic Novel from the whole of Asia, and has been listed as such on many of the leading Search Engines.
'the saadhu testament' tells the story of a Saadhu with a worldwide following. People from all walks of life, including a doctor from Malaysia, a Minister from Australia, a Trade Union Leader from UK, seek the help of the Saadhu. And the Saadhu never fails.The story tries to show that the Saadhu is also performing an invaluable service to humankind, and if anyone attempts to build it up to a major business, it can be as respectable and ethical as any other healing system.
