Speaker Profile:

Venerable Shi Chun Nian is from Bao Guang Fo Tang temple in Singapore. In 1999, she took up the robes when she was 27 under the tutelage of Venerable Sek Te Yuan.

After her ordination, Venerable Chun Nian studied at the International Theravada Buddhist Missionary University in Myanmar from 2000 to 2004 and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Buddhist Studies. She had an interest in the inner workings of the mind, so she sought to learn various meditation techniques from esteemed teachers in Myanmar, Australia, India, United States, and Singapore.
