Ven. Maha Ghosananda

15th Recipient, 1998, Cambodia

Yen. Maha Ghosananda is a Buddhist leader who has devoted himself to a nonviolence movement to bring lasting peace back to the Cambodian people in the wake of the atrocities of the Pol Pot regime and the subsequent civil war.”When we suffer, we can meditate step by step until the stopping of suffering. If we want to stop suffering, we have to stop feeling, vedana, that gives rise to greed, anger, and ignorance.” From Vert. Ghosananda’s acceptance speech
