A ceremony was held on 19th October at Birmingham Buddhist Maha Vihara to launch the Biography composed by Ven.Rathmale Punnaratana, the senior lecture of Gutenberg University Germany in paying respect and gratitude to Ven.Dr.Witharandeniye Kassapa for his lifelong dedication and tireless efforts for Buddhism and the community, not only in this country but worldwide.

In recognition of all his achievements, The University of Ruhuna and The Supreme Sangha Sabha of Rohana in Sri Lanka conferred on him  honorary doctorates in 2003. In Britain, Her Majesty Queen Elizebeth II awarded him the prestigious honour of the (O.B.E.) Order of the British Empire in 2008. Later, the president of Sri Lanka also honoured him by making him a presentation at his office in 2008.  

Now the members of the Midlands International Buddhist Association, in conjunction with the International Buddhist Relief Organisation, have decided to honour him on his 60th birth anniversary by launching. This was written in Sinhala and is being launched at the same time as an English version adapted by devotees in England.
