View Items by Ven. Nyanadassana, Bhikkhu

Ven. Nyanadassana is a Buddhist monk from Greece who has lived in Sri Lanka for the last 20 years. He resided in the Mîtirigala Forest Hermitage for over 19 years. He has studied and practised meditation under the guidance of the late Most Venerable Matara Sri Ñânârâma Mahâthera, the first Meditation Master at the Mîtirigala Forest Hermitage. Ven. Nyanadassana was well acquainted with Ven. Mîtirigala Dhammanisanthi Thera ( Asoka Weeraratna ), the founder of the Mîtirigala Forest Hermitage. He has studied the Tipitaka under Sinhala Theras and Mahâtheras and has thus acquired a theoretical and practical knowledge of Buddhism. He is fluent in several languages (including Sinhala) and is the author of the book "Bhikkhu Pâtimokkha" in German (Pâtimokkha - Das Hauptgesetz der Bettelmönche)
