Bhikkhu Nyanatusita is a Buddhist monk ordained in the Theravada tradition. Since 2005 he has been the English editor of the Buddhist Publication Society, Kandy, Sri Lanka. He extensively studied the Pali language and literature and made has published a study/translation of the Pāli Pātimokkha. His contributions to the DDB come out of his ongoing work on the new English translation of the Theravada meditation treatise Vimuttimagga (Vimuktimārga), of which the Pali original was lost, but which is extant in a 6th century Chinese translation called Jiětuō-dào-lùn, 解脫道論 (Taishō No. 1648) and partly in Tibetan translations.
