About Ven. Bhante Chandananda Thero

I am venerable Matthumagala Chandananda, a monk with a Sri Lankan origin and I was born in 1972.

Albeit my birth in a Buddhist family, I was not really practicing Buddhism until a radical transformation occurred at the age of 23. Simply the curiosity of meditation urged me to try it. Then I realized how meditation could open a beautiful new dimension in my life. This led me to become a real Buddhist and after practicing meditation for a certain period, I became a monk at 31.

Since then, I graduated with a BA and MA degree in Buddhist philosophy from the Buddhist and Pali University in Sri Lanka. I have obtained a diploma in Psychology and Counseling, which have enabled a deeper understanding of human problems and spiritual solutions.

I have been teaching meditation since 2008 and I came to Canada in 2011 upon a request of Sri-Lankan Canadians of Edmonton. Currently, I live in Surrey, fulfilling an invitation from the Buddhist Vihara Society (BVS).
