    July 02, 2014

    The 69th Higher Ordination (Upasampada Pinkama) ceremony of the Sri Lanka Ramanna Maha Nikaya was held today (03) afternoon at the Matara Sanath Jayasuriya Esplanade under the patronage of Agga Maha Panditha the Most Ven. Napana Pemasiri Thera is the Mahanayake of the Sri Lanka Ramanna Maha Nikaya.


    President Mahinda Rajapaksa graced the event where a large number of bhikkhus including those attached to Pirivenas were ordained at this ceremony.


    Ramanna Maha Nikaya was founded in 1864 when Ambagahawatte Saranankara returned to Sri Lanka after being ordained by the Neyyadhama Munivara Sangharaja of Ratnapunna Vihara in Burma. It is one of three Sri Lankan orthodox Buddhist orders, along with Siam Nikaya and Amarapura Nikaya.
