Time Tunnel – Mahindarama Buddhhist Temple of Penang   Leave a comment



From Wikipedia:-

K. Sri Dhammananda (18 March 1919 – 31 August 2006) was a Sri Lankan Buddhist monk and scholar.

Venerable Dhammananda’s journey to Malaya took three days. Upon his arrival in Penang on 5 January 1952, Venerable Dhammananda stayed at the Mahindarama Buddhist Temple. The abbot then was Venerable K. Gunaratana Maha Nayaka Thera (1891–1964), a Sinhalese monk well known for his lucid and simple explanations of the Buddha’s teachings. He took the opportunity to discuss with Venerable Gunaratana some of the problems and issues involved in propagation work in Malaya. It was a practical arrangement, with Venerable Gunaratana concentrating his missionary efforts in Penang while Venerable Dhammananda focussed on the Kuala Lumpur area. Venerable Gunaratana had been in Malaya since 1926 and was quite familiar with the situation of Buddhism in the country.
