My dear friend Ven. Sayadaw U. Nyaninda passed away
Today, I am sad to learn that my dear friend of many decades, Ven. Sayadaw U. Nyaninda, passed away in Yangon, Myanmar. Although he served in the most esteemed position of abbot of the Myanmar Vihara Temple in Bodhgaya, India, to the local community and to countless overseas visitors he was simply known as Bhante-ji.
