Monastery Mahayan Prakash Palyuldharmalya. In the WS a view from inside.

"Mahayana" sutras are a very broad genre of Buddhist scriptures (sutras) which according to Mahayana Buddhists represent original teachings of the Buddha. The earliest scripture that mentions "Mahayana" is the Lotus Sutra, probably compiled in its earliest form in the first century CE.

"Prakash" is a common Indian/Sri Lankan name derived from Sanskrit, literally meaning "bright light" or "Sunlight" or "Moonlight" or "light of the world" or "revelation"

I don't know the meaning of "Palyuldharmalya", nothing found on www.

"We can transform any problem, even death, into happiness. The point is not to stop the experience of problems but to stop the conditions that we call 'problems' from disturbing our mind, and instead use them to support the spiritual path that we practice." Lama Zopa Rinpoche
