A website dedicated to the discourses made by Arahath Mahanuwara Wajirabuddhi Thero
The Most Venerable Mahanuwara Wajirabuddhi Thero

A great sage, born in ancient India known as “Goutama Buddha” often referred to as “Buddha” discovered “Pristine Dhamma” (Buddhism).

Pristine Dhamma, the original teaching of the Buddha owns a historical inheritance of nearly 2600 years and it is purely a way of living only to be understood with one’s own wisdom. Today, this teaching has been turned into a book knowledge based subject known as Buddhism where it is practiced as worship, rituals, chanting and wishing. This teaching is also now practised as a livelihood aimed at gaining worldly pleasures, fame, praise and popularity.  Consequently in an era as this where the original teaching of Buddha has been layered by traditional and cultural influences making it difficult to understand, Arahath Mahanuwara Wajirabdhdhi Thero, through his personal and practical experiences is shining the light to Pristine Dhamma once again.

Living in seclusion since 1990, practising and investigating the teaching of the Buddha under the guidance of self-experienced, skillful,  and noble teachers Arhath Mahanuwara Wajirabudhdhi Thero, owing to his persistent practise is fortunate to attain the supreme bliss of Nibbana (the highest state of perfect happiness and peacefulness and a state of mind which could only be self-experienced by walking the path).

Four Noble Truths, Dukkha (There is no permanent happiness in this world), Samudhaya (The cause for dukkha is attachment to desires), Nirodha (Liberation from dukkha), Magga (The path to liberate from Dukkha) is an extremely delicate reality  impossible to be perceived by the external senses such as eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body and mind and that these Four Noble Truths rest within one’s own self. Henceforth, in keeping to the words of the supreme Buddha, Arhath Mahanuwara Wajirabudhdhi Thero who practises what he preaches and preaches what he practises, imparts a captivating guidance to his followers.  

Arahath Thero addresses all human beings with no discrimination to race, creed, cast or any social status.

The foundation of Buddha's teaching is kindness and compassion towards not only human beings but also towards flora, fauna and all living beings in the universe  is also the foundation and one of the many highlights of the discourses expounded by Arahath Mahanuwara Wajirabudhdhi Thero.

In the year 2006, Arahath came forward to address the wise seekers of the pure teaching of the Buddha and four of his main discourses were broadcasted on Hill Country Radio (of Sri Lanka Broadcasting Corporation) which caused a stir in the traditional Buddhist community.

Breaking a long silence of 10 years, in 2016 at the Mahaweli Centre in Colombo Sri Lanka, Arahath Mahanuwara Wajirabuddhi Thero in response to the question “Does the government need a religion?”  addressed the nation with a convincing and a mind awakening discussion. Subsequently, with Arahath's appearance in a live program called “Pathikada” broadcasted by Sirasa TV Sri Lanka have brought about a positive change in the thinking capacity of the society.

Speaking directly to the hearts of people with a mind awakening call through various frontages of the society, Arahath Mahanuwara Wajirabuddhi Thero is attempting to bring about a society rooted in the teaching of the Buddha, established in high moral standards and thereby catering goodwill to all universal beings and bringing forth a civilised human community.
