    Teacher profile

    Venerable Londonaye Dhammagawesi is a Theravada Buddhist monk, ordained at the Springhill Forest Monastery on the hilltops of Kandy, Sri Lanka (https://www.springhillforestmonastery.com/)
    He ordained in the year of 2007 and receive higher ordaination in 2008 in the “Kalyana Yogasrma” sect, under the auspiciousness of the late Most Ven Nauyane Ariyadhamma Maha Thero (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nauyane_Ariyadhamma_Mahathera)

    Bhante Dhammagawesi was born in the city of London, United Kingdom and was educated in Sri Lanka. After his successful education Trinity College, Kandy, he migrated to the UK and lived the life of a successful corporate executive for 28 yrs. With all his conventional experiences in Telecommunication & consulting, he abandoned “himself” and joined the monastic community, to accomplish his own liberation while sharing some of his experiences with the wider world.
    As a monk, he has had extensive experience with his own practice of Vinaya & meditation, under his teachers and also as a teacher to an international following. He also has spent about 6 years in India and also in the Himalayas experiencing his path.

    Within the Australian community he has been involved with many young groups and families, assisting them with their “personal circumstances” & the practice of meditation. He has been deeply practicing in his chosen path and not spent too much in the public domain, not wanting to be too exposed and hindering his practice. He is currently touring Australia and has with much persuasion volunteered his services to a limited number of events.

    Towards this we are pleased to introduce Venerable Dhammagawesi to share his experiences associated with the Dhamma with the community in Sydney.

     

     

    All Sessions by Donation (Dana) to the Buddhist Library. All donations to the Buddhist Library of $2 and over are tax deductible.

    Dana is the traditional practice of generosity, the extending of one’s goodwill, which is fundamental to Buddhism and other spiritual traditions. The instructions and guidance for this course are offered without requesting a fee and it is up to individuals to determine the amount of dana they would like to offer. It can sometimes be easy to become confused when we are new to this and we wonder “how much should I give?” This is a relevant question in the material economy but an appropriate dana cannot be prescribed but requires sensitivity to its intent and awareness of the costs and expenses associated with organising a course.
