Rerukane Chandawimala


The most Venerable Maha Nayaka Thera

 

Honoured both by the deity and human beings alike,

The glorified son of Gauthama the Buddha,

Venerable Chandawimala Thera and his qualities infinite,

Down at his feet I lie, to pay due reverence

 

Ever glowing with simple, content, exemplary mode of living,

Counselled others while remaining himself resolute and

Awakened those ignorant towards imaginative insight,

Down at his feet I lie, to pay due reverence

 

In lucid simple language, The Three Pitakas he did reproduce,

Thus, let people worldwide imbibie the nectar of Dhamm.

In his treasured volumes, he the moon, illuminates the Sasana sky.

Down at his feet I lie, to pay due reverence

 

Adept in the sublime excellence of Doctrine - The Dhamma,

Being the sun and moon in the skies of  the Sangha Community

He-the ocean of virtues, enriched with sound sagacity.



Down at his feet I lie, to pay due reverence

 

Replete with the fragrance of virtue and rituals, he

Achieved the Blissful Haven, passing the boundaries of Sansara.  

And his profound spiritual excellence worthy of salutation,

Down at his feet I lie, to pay due reverence
