Devotees, supporters and friends of  Ven. Kurunegoda Piyatissa Nayake Thero, chief abbott of New York  Buddhist Vihara,  held a bodhi pooja to wish him good health and long life in celebration of his 85th Birthday.

Venerable Kurunegoda Piyatissa Nayake Mahatero is the founder & chief abbott of the New York Buddhist Vihara for the past 3 decades. Through the years he has spread the word of the buddha  to buddhists and non-Buddhists, visitors from Sri Lanka ,USA and Europe. He had a very influential role for maintaining the honor and integrity of Buddhist monks’. His tireless dedication and genuine concern for the spiritual well-being of the laity and the monastic order remind us how much he conforms to the sayings of the Buddha.
