Bhante Rāhula’s transformative journey began as a prolific musician, mastering various instruments and performing globally. His path took a profound turn when he relinquished his musical career to embrace Theravada monastic life. He toured extensively with his music group Terræ Ignota, directed concerts, composed music for various mediums, and utilized his degree in Music Therapy to teach children about inner harmony through art.
After many years as an artist, Bhante’s focus shifted towards cultivating mindfulness and concentration, and he committed to the Buddhist path in 2004.
He was ordained by Sayadaw Dr. Nandamālābhivaṃsa, Bhante studied under Sayadaw U Tenjaniya and Sayadaw Dr. Ukkamsacara.
He also completed a Harvard course on Buddist scriptures in 2019 and continues his studies in Sāsanārakkha Buddhist Sanctuary in Malaysia.
Bhante Rāhula is currently constructing the Mexican Buddhist Center ‘Paññābhūmi’ to introduce and propagate the Buddha’s teachings in South America, and works in support programs for those battling addiction.
