Bhante Jayāsara and MaggaSekha

Meet Bhante Jayasāra. After years of lay dhamma practice, he ordained at Bhavana Society in West Virginia under the legendary Sri Lankan forest monk Bhante Gunaratana. Almost immediately he found himself teaching and helping lead the community. After four years, he has stepped away from those responsibilities to travel around, visiting other monasteries and learning what he can from the larger tradition. He is currently at the Indonesian Buddhist Family Vihara in Queens, NYC.

Bhante J was one of the first monastics to see the potential in internet teaching. His online community, which you can visit and be a part of at www.maggasekha.org, spans several platforms including YouTube, Facebook, Discord and Second Life. He’s giving teachings and available seven days a week, including informal ‘office hours’ where you can ask whatever questions you might have, and the Monday evening ‘Dhammapalooza’ two hour interactive teaching event.
