Mahamevnawa Monastery of Sydney

Mahamevna monastery of Sydney is a concept of the most ven. Kiribathgoda Gnanananda thero and it was founded by him over a decade ago.

Mahamevnawa Buddhist Monastery is an organization of Buddhist monasteries, of Sri Lankan origin established to benefit the spiritual development of human beings using the teachings of the Gautama Buddha. Its main main monastery is in Polgahawela, Sri Lanka, and Sri Lanka is home to 35 branches of the organization. Overseas branches are in Canada, USA, Australia, UK and Germany.

The founder and the chief Buddhist monk in charge of these monasteries is Venerable Kiribathgoda Gnanananda Thero, who is engaged in spreading Buddhism to both local and international communities, and in highlighting the aim of Buddhism: putting and end to Dukkha (suffering) or attaining Nibbana.

Mahamevnawa monasteries promote teaching, discussion and practice of Dhamma in unaltered form, and that the first step towards cession of suffering is getting to know Buddha's teaching. Mahamevnawa also facilitates the practice of meditation, one of the key tools for improving concentration and wisdom, through cultivating mindfulness (Sathi) as a component of the path to Nibbāna. A key point that Mahmevnawa highlights is that Dhamma not only says that life is suffering, but also shows a proven path to cession of that suffering.
