Western Street Bhikkhu. Nomad Dhamma Gangster. Silently watching the Watcher. An Enigma.
My life has been a wild ride, taking me from living in crack house's to living in monasteries.
I moved to the U.S. from Thailand in 2019 with the intention of making the Dhamma accessible to folks from disadvantaged and marginalized communities. I have had so much resistance to this from the Theravada 'establishment' that I now consider myself independent and am committed to working on these service goals with the love and support of like minded folks.
