  • You are invited to join a special Lotus Buds meeting on June 26 with Ven Rathmalane Bakkula Thero. Join us for a Dharma talk, meditation and discussion with our special guest.

    Ven. Bakkula Thero spent most of his formative years in England after his family moved there while he was a teenager to provide him and his sister with the best prospects. Eventually, he achieved his childhood dream of becoming an engineer while leading a busy but balanced life that involved playing semi-professional cricket and pursuing a successful career in technology.

    Coming from a Buddhist background and inspired by his intuition, Ven. Bakkula Thero was interested in understanding the metaphysical aspects of Buddhist philosophy which plays a significant role in shaping a rewarding and fulfilling life. One day, while stumbling upon a Buddhist sermon, he realised that he had found the universal truth that could heal the world. He did not hesitate to leave behind his life of luxury and return to Sri Lanka, his motherland, to find a teacher who could eventually help him achieve a profound sense of inner peace and serenity.

    Presently, he is actively disseminating the Buddha’s teachings in English and Sinhala languages to people worldwide. He believes every human deserves to know the truth and live their life to the fullest. His life’s mission is to work for the betterment of humanity and to inspire, motivate and guide those who wish to join him in his purpose as he deeply resonates with the saying “We rise by lifting others”.
