Ven. Galagodaatte Gnanasara Thera on December 11 received the keys for a V8 car that has been at the centre of controversy of late.
Dr. Walter Jayasinghe, who lives in the US, donated the vehicle for use by the Thera.
Earlier in the day, a boy named Janindu Maleesha entered priesthood as Ven. Anganaketiye Gnaseeha under Gnanasara Thera’s guidance at Saddharmarajika Vihara in Rajagiriya.
