After Venerable Susīla’s ordination in 1991, she traveled to Myanmar to pursue her intensive meditation practice for many years, learning under the guidance of several renowned teachers using various techniques.
Venerable Susīla is proficient in both Chinese and English and is well-known for her simple and lucid way of imparting the profound teachings of the Buddha. She is also well-versed in the Abhidhamma, Sutta Pitaka and the Pāli language. As a very experienced and competent meditation instructor, she has taught many students who have benefited and found joy through her meaningful Dhamma talks and guidance.
Venerable Susīla’s numerous Dhamma publications, both in Chinese and English, have been published and made available around the world.
Over the years, Venerable Susīla has traveled to many places around the world but has never made any of these places her permanent home. She untiringly propagates the Dhamma, teaching meditation in the United States, Canada, Australia, Taiwan, Latvia, Indonesia, Singapore, and Malaysia. Lately, Venerable Susila has focused her Dhamma teachings primarily in Penang, where she now leads a group of devoted practitioners to actualize her vision in prolonging the Buddha Sasana.
