Ajahn Moneyyo has never been to Sri Lanka. He is enjoying his visit to the island of serendipity, which has played such a crucial role in preserving the Theravada tradition for more than two millennia. Singhalese culture has maintained it's Therevada Buddhist heart for more than 2,200 years, despite all vicissitudes of war and occupation and colonization.


While all of India first became mostly Mahayana & Vajrayana, and finally lost the Sāsanā completely, the island of Lanka kept the beacon of Dhamma shining. Ajahn Moneyyo is happy to finally experience that Buddhist culture first hand in the country itself.

  • 27th to 29th April Visit Bhante Amatasiri



  • 29th April to 6th May (?) Springhill monastery (Ulpathkanda) On one day during his stay near Kandy, he hopes to visit the Temple of the sacred tooth, and 'Forest Hermitage' in Udawatta Kele Forest Reserve
