Passing away of a great monk !

Most Ven. Katukurunde Nyanananda Maha Thero passed away on the early hours of 22 February 2018 at the National Hospital of Colombo. He was an exemplary monk and a scholar. He was one of the few remaining students of late Matara Sri Gnanarama Maha Thero of Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya.

Most Ven. K. Nyanananda Maha Thero wrote a large number of books which were very useful to the serious practitioners of Vipassana meditation. The Maha Thero’s Dhamma series titled ‘Nivane Niveema’ and ‘Pahan Kanuwa Desana’ are quite popular both among the monastery monks and the meditating public.

The funeral will be conducted at Kirillwala Estate, Dammulla, Karandana. (Tel: 0777127454) on Friday, 23 February 2018.

    One of the Most erudite Maha Theras to grace our land & his vast knowledge on true Dhamma is in fact non comparable in modern times. His books are so outstanding & enjoyable & are a must for any one with interest in Dhamma.
    May he attain the Nibbana sooner than later in one of the Bodies he so wished.
