Venerable Gnanananda Thero visited the Tampa Branch in early June and stayed for 3 days. He met the American community on June 1tth 2015. we had a wonderfull time with him. We like to share our happiness with all of you. He is the teacher of Bhante Sadhassara and the founder of the Mahamevnawa organization. There are around 50 branch monasteries for meditation throughout Sri Lanka, Canada, USA, Australia, UK, Dubai, Italy, India,and Germany. He brought the Buddha’s original teachings back to life and this is why we have a center here in Tampa. Because of his service, we have this opportunity to learn Dhamma through the teachings of the Buddha and learn from well disciplined monks who are practicing the Dhamma. This was a rare opportunity to offer our gratitude to him. Thanks everybody for helping us.
