Born in Sri Lanka to a Buddhist family and migrated to the UK in 1982. Lived in Amaravati since 2006.
Took 8 precepts in 2008 and received Pabbajja in 2011. Hearing the Buddha’s teachings in primary school, the Eightfold Path resonated as an important set of principles in living as a human being.
Establishing the right view and incorporating the Eightfold Path into daily life is the key to practicing.
