Bana Bhante passes away

Postby mirco » Mon Jan 30, 2012 9:45 pm

Venerable Sadhanananda Mahasthavira, the highest spiritual leader of the Buddhists and chief abbot of Rajban Bana Vihar, Rangamati, passed away (maha-parinibbana) due to old age complications at Square Hospital, Dhaka on Monday afternoon, reports BSS. ... s_id=51843

He will be remembered in his teachings:

Sermon of the Ariyasavaka Sadhanananda Mahathera (Banabhante).pdf

"An important term for meditative absorption is samadhi. We often translate that as ‘concentration’, but that can suggest a certain stiffness. Perhaps ‘unification’ is a better rendition, as samadhi means ‘to bring together’. Deep samadhi isn't at all stiff. It’s a process of letting go of other things and coming to a unified experience." Bhikkhu Anālayo
