With deepest regrets to announce that Venerable Professor Kakkapalliye Anuruddha has passed away peacefully in Sri Lanka on September 29, 2013. He was a renowned Buddhist scholar and offered courses on Theravada Buddhism and Pali language as a visiting Professor at the HKU Centre of Buddhist Studies for 10 years since 2002. He also served the greater Buddhist community in Hong Kong during those years. We not only mourn the passing of a tremendous individual, but are also remembering his outstanding contribution to Buddhism. He dedicated his whole life to propagating Buddhism. We are deeply grateful for his marvelous service.
