Please join us in Welcoming Suddhaso Bhikkhu from the Bhavanna Society, a Theraveda Monastery in West Virginia.
Bhante Suddhāso first started to practice Buddhist meditation at the age of 17, in the tradition of Soto Zen. At the age of 20 he began living at Tassajara, a Zen monastery in central California, where he stayed for two years. At the end of that time he moved to Abhayagiri, a Theravāda forest monastery in northern California, where he was ordained as a monk and trained for several years before moving on to explore other monasteries. Currently he resides in New York City and leads public meditation class and retreats on a weekly basis.
