Dhammaruwan, born in a traditional Buddhist village in Sri Lanka became known for spontaneously chanting suttas in his early childhood. Having begun his meditation practice in his early childhood with the teachings of Anagarika Munindra, Dhammaruwan has since associated many world renowned Dhamma teachers. He has over 35 years of meditation and Dhamma practice. While still a teenager, in 1987, Dhammaruwan co-taught his first residential retreat with Bhikkhu Wannasara. He was trained for many years under Bhante Henepola Gunaratana Nayaka Thero, during which time he took temporary ordination as Samanera Dhammaratana. Dhammaruwan is a graduate of Insight Meditation Society's Teacher Training Program USA (2005). He founded the Nirodha Trust and the Nirodha City Centre. Dhammaruwan teaches worldwide and brings his students a complex teaching in simple and easy language.

The aims, methods and rationales of the present Māgadhabhāsā (Pāḷi) grammar are as follows: (a) Lubricating access to the information contained in numerous modern Pāḷi grammars written in English by collating the dispersed material contained within them. People who wish to learn about grammatical rules and principles – either on a broader spectrum or at all – are compelled to track them down in the thicket of the widely scattered grammar inventories as separately given by the various available grammars. These works, mostly fine and outstanding works of scholarship in their own right, each individually often contain valuable data and perspectives not found in the other ones, and these are attempted to be distilled and presented with this Pāḷi grammar. (b) Facilitating identification of and providing explicit reference to most of the grammatical rules contained in the Kaccāyanabyākaraṇaṃ (Kaccāyana), the oldest extant Pāḷi grammar, as well as to selected ones from other traditional grammars.
