Chief Sanganayake of Australia – Asigiriya Chapter
Wimalakeerthi Sri Devananda
Chief Incumbent of Dhammadeepa Meditation Centre
Honourable Venerable Akaravita Sangananda Thero, MA
The Dhammadeepa meditation centre commenced in 1994 at Henley street and shifted to Hemmings street, Dandenong in 1995. Even though we live thousands of miles away from our motherland, I have the great pleasure of praising the efforts of the Sinhalese community, to build temples and live according to the thoughts of the religion and the guidance of our religious leaders.
Since the inception of the centre, it has been able to continually conduct the daily rituals, mediation classes on Saturdays and to conduct the “Dhamma Pasal” on Sundays.In addition, annual “Katina Pinkama”, “Vesak lanterns” for the Vesak Festival and “Bakhthi Gee” are held with the participation and the assistance of all Melbournians.
May the Noble Triple Gems Protect You All.
