About Bhante Kumara

About Bhante Kumara
Kumara Bhikkhu was ordained in 1999 at the age of 27. With his training in education, he has been sharing the Dhamma in various ways and in several languages (mainly English, Mandarin & Hokkien) with Buddhists of various traditions and non-Buddhists too.
He is influenced by Bhaddanta Aggacitta Mahathera to be open to Dhamma teachings beyond orthodoxy & tradition, so long as they work towards the ending of suffering. Inspired by his main meditation teacher, Sayadaw U Tejaniya (www.sayadawutejaniya.org), he is especially interested in spiritual teachings that show how to cultivate wisdom that removes the causes of suffering.
