So long, Chief Rev…

Chief Reverend K Sri Dhammananda has left us…

In loving memory…

Venerable Dr K Sri Dhammananda Maha Nayaka Thera

1919 – 2006

Chief, as he is fondly known, has been instrumental in the growth of Buddhism in Malaysia, as well as Singapore. Having been born in Sri Lanka, ordained at the age of 12, he dedicated his entire life to Buddhism,and gave more than 50 years of his dedication to Malaysia.

Chief has been critically ill for the past six week, and eventually passed away peacefully at 12:42 pm today. He was 87. For all his contributions, we can only say Sadhu to him…

Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!

And I feel blessed that I was once seated on the same stage with Chief during One Voice forum.
