Reply To: How to call the Buddha in Sinhala word?


“Swamin Wahanse/Svāmin Vahansē (ස්වාමින් වහන්සේ) is an honorary term reserved for an honored bhikkhu or the Buddha. 

Also, another term used for ONLY the Buddha is “අමා මෑණියන් වහන්සේ” (amā maniyan vahansē) where “amā” indicates Nibbāna and “mani” (මෑණි) indicates “mother.” 

  • Thus, it is the third term used for the Buddha in addition to the first two mentioned above.
