Introduction to the 'Sadhamma Preaching Fund'
It is quite known to us that on 30th January 2012 A.D, our beloved spiritual teacher, the most of his holiness Ven. Sadanananda Mahathero (popularly known as Vana Bhante) attained Arahanthood at the age of 93. His attained Arahanthood was a huge breakthrough and irreparable loss to the Buddhist society in the Chittagong Hill Tracts as well as in the world. It will take much time to come as same as the Arahat Bhikkhu like him in this present world. Buddha said "Anicchabatta Sam Kara" it means all the forms (conditionness) in this world are impermanent.
Yet, so as to make 2012 noteworthy, to pay our great, humble, and deep respect to Ven. Vana Bhante, along with an aim and objective for the mankind, to widely flourish Buddhism, to expand, preserve the prosperity of the Buddha's teaching, and reach Buddha's messages to the people living at various places, and to follow Ven. Bana Bhante noble principles, protect his reign and save his founded institutions. So to prolong & keep up that very noble work. He (Ven.Nandapal Mahathero) has began taking steps by establishing a "Sadharma Preaching Fund".

Bana Bhante) approved and confered him (Ven.Nandapal Mahathero) the responsibilities of expanding Buddha's teaching beyond Bangladesh.

Buddha said "Sabbha Danam, Dhamma Danam, Jinati". It means the act of Dhamma Danam (religious endowment) triumph over all other act of charities, it is the highest charity that a man can do in his lifetime, and it is above all others charitable deeds.
Proclaiming by paying deep respect to holly trinity (Buddha, Dharma, Sangha), all the charitable and religious minded man and women are requested to be a part of this boundless blessing and merciful work by giving monthly or yearly endowment as possible.
