Ven. Sayalay Susila:June 1, 2014 visit

Born and educated in Malaysia, Sayalay Susila ordained as a Theravada Buddhist nun in 1991 at the age of 28, and has trained with two renowned Burmese meditation masters – the Venerable Sayadaw U Pandita and the Venerable Pa-Auk Sayadaw, under whose guidance she continues to practice today.

Sayalay is well known especially for the clarity of her teaching of the Theravada Buddhist Suttas and Abhidhamma, which she taught initially in Taiwan, Malaysia, and Singapore, as well as in Buddhist centers across Canada, the United States, and Australia.

Sister has two books in print: The Nine Attributes of the Buddha (in Chinese) and Unravelling the Mysteries of Mind and Body Through Abhidhamma (in English). She speaks fluent English, Mandarin Chinese, and Burmese, and has translated widely from English to Chinese for Venerable Pa-Auk Sayadaw in Malaysia and Taiwan. Several of Sister’s devoted disciples recently donated land on which she is building an international meditation center, Appamada Vihari.
