My name is Siripala Jagodage. I lives in Kadawtha,In Sri Lanka.I am born to a Buddhist parents.Hence I was Buddhist by tradition.The real Buddhism I understand through by reading books and investigation .The books I read were by Francis Story,Ajahan Cha,Ajahan Brahamawanso, S R Goenka jee,Joshp Goldstein,Ekhart Tolle, Depa Matha,Bhante H Gunarathne,Bhante Nauyne Ariyadhamma only to mention few.I offer my sincere gratitude to all of them in opening my Dhamma eyes.
Now I am 67 years old.I started my serious Dhamma study about 20 yrs back.I now fathom the Maha Metta,Karuna,Muditha and Uppeka the Great Loard Gutama Buddha had on humble creatures like us.It is unequal.It is because of Maha Karuna of Sumeda at Great Buddha Deepankara that we were able to tread the path of Nirwana.
I believe that using prevailing Dhamma we can achieve at least the 1sT step of the path within this life time.I wish that all Dhamma wheelers strive for this goal, if not for 2,3 or Final Goal.
May all be Happy.
Hello: I am a 56 year old Canadian. I am a student of PhraDhammongolayarn Luangphor Viriyang Sirantharo, Lord Abbot Wat Dhammamongkol in Bangkok Thailand. He has many meditation centres around the world and is building more. I began my studies with him in 2008 and am an Assistant Instructor at the Willpower Institute Calgary Meditation Centre. I am slowly learning more about the Buddha, Sangka and the Dhamma and how to live a happy stable life. My family moved around when I was a child and I have lived in quite a few Canadian cities as well as spending 4 years in Germany. I first learned of meditation during Junior High school classes in the 1970's. It is the meditation that has brought me to Buddhism.
