Bhante Sujatha 2021_edited.png

We live in a world full of excitement and influence. It is easy and common to get caught up and consumed with it all. It's important for us to understand that the world we are presented with is not always in keeping with reality, and while there is no stopping the show, we can find the stillness within to remind ourselves of the true nature of life.

Bhante Sujatha (he/him), 40 year Buddhist Monk, is singularly focuses on adding more love in the world. Bhante teaches loving-kindness meditation to people around the globe for all those seeking the art of happiness and contentment. His approach to meditation is deep and simple, bringing core Buddhist teachings to everyone in a way that is practical and easy to understand. A joyful, radiant, funny and wildly energetic monk, Bhante will help you obtain peace that can only be found in deep silence. He is originally from Sri Lanka and is the head monk/abbot of the Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple and Meditation Center in Woodstock, IL. Bhante believes his purpose is not only to teach meditation, but also, “teaching people how to be happy.”
