Beginning April 17 at 7:30 am, Venerable Maggavihari will share a Dhamma Sermon on every Sunday through Dhamma USA and IIT YouTube channels and Facebook pages.
VENERABLE WATAGODA MAGGAVIHĀRĪ
Vice President of The International Institute of Theravāda.
Venerable Maggavihārī, an old boy of Royal College, is one of the prominent disciples of late Nā-Uyane Ariyadhamma Mahāthera from whom he took his ordination in 2006.
Having lived and learned under the supervision of Ariyadhamma Mahāthera for continuous six years, venerable Maggavihārī went to Myanmar in 2012 to further his studies on Theravāda Buddhism at the International Theravāda Buddhist Missionary University. There he earned both B.A. and M.A. while extensively studying Therāvāda Buddhism as preserved by the Burmese tradition. He started his teaching career as an Abhidhamma teacher in Nāuyana Forest Monastery and continued to do so at ITBMU helping his fellow colleagues.
As a senior student he taught Abidamma, Vipassana, Pali and Vinaya to number of junior students at ITBMU.
In addition, he has enormous experience with monastic life both in Thai and Burmese traditions.
As a practitioner, he spent some time at Wat Pah Nanachat practicing and learning Thai Forest tradition, and he practiced a few other meditation techniques such as Mahasi, and Mogok during his stay in Myanmar.
Currently, Venerable Maggavihārī serves as the vice president of the International Institute of Theravāda, conducting online courses for both laity and monastics all around the world. His English medium course on Fundamentals of Theravāda Buddhism is highly praised by many who are interested in the subject.
