  • To the End of Body and Mind - by Bhante Joe Atulo:

    “In his 49 years in the monkhood, Nyānadīpa Bhante pioneered an exemplary monastic lifestyle. It was a lifestyle focused on living in solitary kuṭis, deep in the Sri Lankan forest. He was peerless in his solitary lifestyle among contemporary monks. He had an unmatched depth of experience dwelling in the deep forest. His knowledge of the practical and theoretical aspects of the Dhamma was profound. For these reasons — and more — he became an elusive legend.”
