 Bhikkhu Buddharakkhita was born in Uganda (East Africa). He has learned from various masters in India, Burma, and the US and was ordained by the late Burmese monk Sayadaw U Silananda in 2002. In 2005, he founded the Uganda Buddhist Center in Kampala, Uganda, the first Buddhist Center in Uganda. He has been a resident monk at the Bhavana Society in West Virginia.

The Buddhist Channel, Oct 23, 2009

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia -- The Buddhist Maha Vihara in Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur is pleased to launch its first ever Dhamma publication in Luganda, the language of the people of Uganda, in Africa.


This is the 16th language undertaken by the Vihara’s FREE PUBLICATIONS PROGRAM to serve niche Buddhist communities throughout the world.

The book is a translation of “How to Practise Buddhism? authored by Ven Dr K Sri Dhammananda. The book was translated by Nicholas K. Ssewanyana and Tom Kyembe and edited by Bhante U. Buddharakkhita, currently the only native African Theravada Buddhist monk.

Ven Buddharakkhita has also authored another popular book, “Planting the Seeds of Dhamma”- the Emergence of Buddhism in Africa. Bhante’s book was also published by our Vihara in English and Mandarin.

Ven Buddharakkhita was also instrumental in setting up the Uganda Buddhist Center in Kampala, the first ever Buddhist center in Africa set up by a native African Buddhist monk. The Venerable’s mother has ordained to become the first Theravada native African Buddhist nun.

The Uganda centre and its Buddhist population is growing slowly with the support of Buddhists overseas and the small expatriate Chinese, Thai, Burmese and Sri Lankan communities.

The Vihara annually publishes about 200,000 to 300,000 Buddhist books in several languages, and also produces CDs, VCDs and MP3s for free distribution.

The Vihara’s free publications are available in English, Mandarin, Bahasa Malaysia, Tamil, Sinhalese, Vietnamese, Burmese, Thai, Brazilian Portugese, Spanish, Hindi, Kannada, Telegu, Kishwahili and Chichewa. The Vihara also teaches the Dhamma to the Deaf using sign language, the only such Buddhist class in Malaysia.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sbfptk60--E&feature=youtu.be
Kepada rakyat Malaysia yang hormati,
Suka-lah kita memberitahu bahawa Sami Negera Myamnar kebanyakannya ajaran sesat, banyak permikirannya yang tak betul, main perempuan, tipu wang orang ramai dan lain-lain.

Seorang Myanmar Sami Buddha (VEN. ASHIN INDAKA) bertinggal SAMNAK SAMBODHI BUDDHIST TEMPLE, NO: 19 JALAN 38 TAMAN DESA JAYA, KEPONG, KUALA LUMPUR, 52100 MALAYSIA (YIP KUM FOOK”MCA GOMBAK” PRESIDENT) yang sama jahat.

Harap orang ramai, khasnya rakyat Malaysia mesti jauhkan sami Myanmar ini. kami harap juga Kerajaan Malaysia lebih mengambil perhatian Sami Buddha yang di upah dari luar Negeri, supaya rakyat Malaysia dan Nagera dapat di selamatkan. Sekian, Terima Kasih

Respect to people of Malaysia,
Likely, we are told that the Myanmar monks mostly false teaching, many impress notions which are not right, play girl, cheating of the public money and others.

Myanmar Buddhist Monk (VEN. ASHIN INDAKA) stayed at SAMNAK SAMBODHI BUDDHIST TEMPLE, NO: 19 JALAN 38 TAMAN DESA JAYA, KEPONG, KUALA LUMPUR, 52100 MALAYSIA (YIP KUM FOOK”MCA GOMBAK” PRESIDENT) as same bad.

Hope all people; especially Malaysians must far away Myanmar's monks. We hope more Malaysia’s Government also noted that the wages of Buddhist monks from the other countries, so that the Malaysian and country can be saved. Thank you

尊敬的马来西亚人民,
我们想告知,缅甸僧侣多半是假的教学,观念是不正确的,玩女人,谎言,欺骗金钱………

敬爱的马来亚佛总理事先生Buddhist Maha Vihara, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia佛寺理事先生以及佛教信徒.

自从Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)当任主席, 有预谋的迫走本地和尚(吉兰丹), 而遠聘缅甸和尚, 当任主持之后Samnak Sambodhi Thai Buddhist Temple No: 19 Jalan 38 Taman Desa Jaya, Kepong 52100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia(暹廟)就一直发生种种的是是非非, 以引起方民間議論纷纷.

其因是Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)所领导的理事会, 勾结外耒的缅甸和尚, 以啇業経营, 不依佛法的精神办事, 只借宗教之名捞取权和私利所引起………. 最近又自行一套商业手法, 规定任和人, 若想出家当和尚修道者, 必先供给RM400大元, 否则免谈. 這种啇業手法, 已引起广大的信徒愤怒而不满.

Samnak Sambodhi Thai Buddhist Temple (暹廟)是佛总之联会, 而身佛堂之主席Yip Kum Fook (MCA Gombak Chairman)不以佛陀的教誨, 修心養性, 却反其道而行, 接着权势, 无悪不做, 三妻四妾, 骗财骗色, 破坏別人的家庭.....现在他的排聞满天飞, 不但给佛寺帶耒不好的名声, 也間接的耻辱佛教信仰者.

所从我们祈望马来亚佛总与Buddhist Maha Vihara, Brickfields, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia理事同仁, 给以关注, 共創義举, 维护佛法

此致, 并
祝安康, 工作愉快.

YIP KUM FOOK (LAWYER) BOHONG KATA RESITS KUIL HILANG!
Kepada orang ramai yang di hormati,
YIP KUM FOOK (MCA GOMBAK) mengaduan ke Polis resit yang simpan di tempat Kuil yang sunyi pun hilang. Mengapa pencuri bolih tahu? Mengapa CCTV tak rakam? Semua cakap bohong.
Ini semuanya dia bermain wayang sendiri. Siapa mahu curi resit yang tidak berhargai itu? Ini bukan duit? Ini bukan Mas? Kerana dia cuba menutup akaun yang tidak serata Kuil SAMNAK SAMBODHI, TAMAN DESA JAYA, KEPONG, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA. Dia ingat orang ramai semua bodoh.

To the public that is respected,
YIP KUM FOOK (MCA Gombak) report to Police: donation receipts keep in Temple a quietly were disappeared. Why thieves can know? Why CCTV not record? All telling lie.
This is his entire play movie. Who wants to steal invaluable receipts? This is not money? This is not gold? Because he tried to cover unbalance account of SAMNAK SAMBODHI, TAMAN DESA JAYA, KEPONG, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA. . He thought, people are stupid.
