Ayya Anandabodhi was born and raised at the foot of the sacred Preseli Mountains in Wales, UK. She first encountered the Buddha’s teaching in her early teens while reading a book on Buddhism. Reading the Four Noble Truths was life-changing and from that moment she experienced a deep confidence in the Buddha’s insight, and a wish to understand his teachings more deeply. At the age of 24, Ayya Anandabodhi began monastic training at Amaravati Buddhist Monastery in England.
Seventeen years later, in 2009, she moved to the USA with a wish to create more opportunities for women monastics. In 2011 she took full Bhikkhuni Ordination, joining the worldwide revival of the Theravada Bhikkhuni Order. Ayya Anandabodhi’s practice and teaching are guided by early Buddhist scriptures, living in community, and through nature’s pure and immediate Dhamma. To learn more, visit Aloka Vihara’s website.
