Bhante Wimala is a Sri Lankan Buddhist monk of the Theravada tradition, who travels the world to share his guidance and wisdom with people of all faiths. Sent by choice to a Buddhist temple at the age of 13, Bhante completed six years of formal training as a Buddhist monk and received his higher ordination at age 20. At this stage, a Buddhist monk is typically encouraged by custom or inclination to continue in strictly formal studies, which are primarily academic in their emphasis. Bhante Wimala however, chose to set out into the world bearing only his robe and bowl.
Bhante has devoted his life to helping others by promoting his message of inner peace and spiritual transformation. Trough his Triple Gem Society, where he serves as Spiritual Director he has impacted the lives of people far and wide. He currently resides in Princeton, NJ, but will more often be found travelling the world sharing his spiritually enlightening and inspiring message – teaching people how to create more peace, harmony and joy in their everyday lives.

 

The Vision Board Workshop 2018 scheduled for Sunday, January 14, 2017 has been postponed.
