Buddhism (Newly Released Book July 2017)
By Ven. Kiribathgoda Gnanananda Thero (Author)
Buddhism teaches the way of life, the reality of life that is ever existing in the world. The Buddha, the discoverer of this truth, directly talks about the main issue all the beings have to undergo: that is suffering. He most compassionately shows the path which leads to the end of suffering as well. He unambiguously points out that whoever earnestly practices His teachings will taste the bliss of Nibbāna, the freedom from suffering.
About the Author
Most Ven. Kiribathgoda Gnanananda Thero is a meditation teacher in Sri Lanka. He is the founder of Mahamevnawa Buddhist Monastery, one of the largest Buddhist monasteries in Sri Lanka. The ‘dissemination of the Dhamma’ started by the Ven. Kiribathgoda Gnanananda Thero, with his thirty years of experience as a Buddhist monk was wide spread throughout the country in a very short period of time. As a result of describing the Buddha’s Dhamma in a comprehensible language pattern, devotees of all ages started to join Venerable Thero’s meditation programs. Because of his talent in presenting the meditations in a way so that one’s mind will get easily surrendered, these programs became accommodating for many people who were looking for meditation classes.
