The happiness operations of Professor Happiraja, bind all the six novels together, to make the Saga, a word story, illuminated with the philosophy of Lord Buddha.
The Saga has a small group of interesting characters. Their interactions within that group are intricately carved and woven together to make Happy Raj Saga, an unforgettable reading experience for the readers. The author, with his multi-faceted training and experiences in a spectrum of fields and services, has the focus of attracting the attention of his readers to meditation, to enhance their levels of happiness.
The Happy Raj Saga runs on two parallel rails: The emotion-packed drama of the family of Weda Ralahamy, moves up, down, and sideways, motored by beauty queen Nangi, and her sister Akki, who gets into the yellow robes to go in search of Nirvana. It is packed with heart-melting pathos, nerve-wracking poignancy created by iguanas, birds, squirrels, and non-human forces such as ghosts and divine beings.
Even dreams play an important role.

Mid-ocean boat accidents, mysterious deaths, attempted suicides, the rape of an unconscious beauty queen, terrorist attacks, tsunami waves, and tornados add more sugar, spices, and vinegar to the dishes. On the other rail runs the spiritual bandwagon of Professor Happiraja and his group of yogis and yoginis, where philosophy-packed strategic operations such as Operation Nirvana, are formulated, revised at several levels, and launched, to push the meditators closer to the supreme happiness levels in Nirvana.
Unperturbed by the changes in the environment, Akki Maniyo struggles with the help of her sister and family to continue with her holy struggle. When Nangi plans to build a temple in their ancestral property, Akki Maniyo donates her savings to finance the total building costs. Professor Happiraja's target for his unique strategic operations was DadaHamuduruwo and his meditators. Later he acquires another unit operatedexclusively for women and developed the Paradise for females. Dada Hamuduruwo dies before the plan is completed and his body isdeposited in a glass casket in the elegant three-story Dada Mausoleum, to helpthe yogis in their contemplations.
It enhances him as a Stream Winner [Sotapanna]. However, theabsence of any material evidence to prove his entry in to the Arya Margacreates a problem in making others to accept his success. Dissanayake Armedwith an MBA, former clerk, lecturer, trade unionist, merchant banker, fundmanager, and marketing consultant, Nihal S. Dissanayake is a graduate in economics.
