Re: Next Katukurunde Nanananda - Ven Bandarawela Wangeesa.

:woohoo:
Actually, nobody told me that. This video is a Dhamma talk by Ven. Wangeesa.
I thought the picture was funny that a young woman watching herself in the mirror beautifying herself.
I showed this to another person and she said she saw a penis!
