We are pleased to present a new Dhamma series being conducted by the Ven. Monks of Mitirigala Nissaranavanya Forest Monastery  at Imaduwa and Koggala. The series was started by Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero as one day meditation programs as a response to many requests made by devoted practitioners of meditation living in Down South. These programs were widely attended by the meditating public of the area.

The series was dormant for some time and it was rejuvenated recently by Ven. Panadure Chandaratana, a Senior disciple of the Maha Thero.

A historic development at Imaduwa took place on 26 August 2017. On that day the land was donated to Mitirigala Nissaranavanya Sanrakshana Mandalaya by Mr. Wijesena of Kotte. It was a special day for the birth of a new branch monastery at Imaduwa.

The latest recordings are nos. 13 to 15 recorded on 04 March 2018.
