Melbourne prelate completes 35 years of ordination

The Sakayamuni Sambuddha Vihara in Berwick, Melbourne provides religious guidance to over 3000 Sri Lankan Buddhists living in the neighbourhood while disseminating Dhamma through a well established Dhamma school, in which over 200 pupils are enrolled at present.

There is also a Buddhist youth group that meets once a month conducting discussions on the Dhamma and learn meditation practices. The graduates from the Dhamma school join the Youth Group to continue with their Buddhist education and spiritual development.

Ven Wimalananda Thera and the late Ven Soma Maha Thera


The temple has witnessed a progressive growth under the patronage of the chief incumbent Ven Digamadulle Wimalananda Thera.

At present the temple is one of the most active centres among the Sri Lankan Buddhists domiciled in Victoria. Following the guidance imparted by late Ven Soma Maha Thera, the Thera actively participates in the Victorian Buddhist Council, an umbrella organisation for all Buddhist traditions in Victoria. Ven Wimalananda Thera completes 35 years of higher ordination having entered the Sasana in January 1976.

He received his higher ordination in 1978 and studied the Dhamma under the tutelage of the Most Ven Madihe Pannaseeha Maha Nayake Thera and the Most Ven Ampitiye Rahula Maha Thera at the Siri Vajiragnana Bhikkhu Training Centre, Maharagama.

Buddhist Vihara of Queensland - Goodna Temple

The Buddhist Vihara of Queensland is situated on 2.5 acres of bush-land setting in Goodna on an elevated land. Its native vegetation along with ample wild life creates serene and calm surroundings, with the stone Buddha statue in meditation posture in front of the main building. The main building houses the shrine room with a beautiful Buddha statue, monks quarters. Disability access is from the back of the building. Toilet facilities for the visiting public are located at the ground floor area. The place can easily accommodate 500 visitors during a major festival. The veranda around the upper floor of the building provides ample space for a quiet sitting for meditation.

Visitors from all walks of life and religious beliefs are welcome to visit the temple. All the residents in the immediate neighbourhood consider the temple as a valuable addition to the forest setting of the area. They all appreciate the harmless, non-invasive and peaceful life of the monks and the devotees. It recommended that one should visit the temple just to experience the ambiance of the place.

Sensible attire with white or lighter colours is welcome. While at the temple, speak little and act in a disciplined manner.

Silence is the key thing for the cultivation of mind.
