Venerable Chuan Guan was ordained under Master Miu King (Master Miao Jing 妙境長老) in 2002 (higher ordination in 2003) and began his monastic training in Fa Yun Monastery (New Mexico, United States). He learned the sutras and practised meditation under the Mahayana Buddhist tradition while studying the Theravadin Pali Canon.
2006 to 2016, he trained and served as resident monk in Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery and the Buddhist Library. He currently teaches in various Buddhist societies and conducts retreats while providing counseling and spiritual services.
You can find him via this blog www.buddhavacana.net, on facebook, twitter, and his Dharma apps on Apple and Android mobile devices. He received his degree in Computer Engineering from Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and worked in the tech industry prior to monkhood. (Oh and sometimes he also provide technical tutelage to students studying computing! haha)
