“Bhikkhus, when virtuous renunciant dwell in dependence on a village or a town, there people generate much merit in three ways.
What are the three? By body, speech and mind.
When virtuous renunciant dwell in dependence on a village or a town, there people generate much merit in these three ways.”
This is the impeccable statement made by the great Master, the Gauthama Buddha about his true disciples 26 centuries ago. The pearl of Indian Ocean and the beautiful island Sri Lanka was very fortunate to inherit a worthy personage at the dawn of the 20th century.
An irreplaceable loss of Most Venerable Kotugoda Dhammawasa Maha Nayaka Maha Thera is a huge vacuity. Humbleness and simplicity are the shining characteristics in Maha Thera’s life. Unique style of delivering Dhamma talks were pleasing and agreeable. May Maha Thera attain The Supreme Bliss of Nibbana!
