Ven. Panadure Chandaratana Thero is a young monk from Mitirigala Nissaranavanaya Forest Monastery. The Thero has proficiency in both Sinhala and English. The Dhamma listeners first got an introduction about Ven. Chandaratana some months ago. That was when he translated the English Dhamma Talks of Most Ven. U. Dhammajiva Maha Thero at Allenmathiniyaramaya and later at Sri Gnanarama, Thalawathugoda.
We are very pleased to provide below the answers to questions raised by the Yogis at the recent Silent Retreats conducted by Ven. Panadure Chandaratana Thero. These answers are of high value and comprise invaluable Dhamma insights. The answers reflect a deep understanding of the Vipassana meditative Path. Ven. Chandaratana displays a surprising freshness coupled with simplicity, compassion and humility when answering complex questions. The answers are direct and penetrating and yet the Yogi feels quite at ease when listening to them.
These sessions are highly recommended to the Yogis of all levels.
