Nalanda Buddhist Society extends our warmest wishes and respect to Venerable Dr. Henepola Gunaratana Nāyaka Thero on his 93rd birthday today!
Fondly known as ‘Bhante G’, Ven. Gunaratana left Sri Lanka as a young monk to propagate Dhamma in India, Malaysia, and the United States of America. He is the Founder-President of Bhāvanā Society in the U.S.A. and author of many popular Buddhist texts, including the seminal meditation manual “Mindfulness in Plain English”.
Nalandians are grateful to have learned and benefitted from Ven. Gunaratana’s Dhamma teachings and benevolent guidance on the numerous occasions he visited Nalanda Centre. We wish Bhante a blessed birthday! May you live long in good health and spirit.
