What is Goodness as described in the Buddha’s dispensation? 

Why is it so important as the foundation of our spiritual journey? How do we practice goodness? How does this practice lead to our happiness and the happiness of others?


About the speaker: Ariyamangalā, comes from a large family, originally from the Philippines, and migrated to Sydney, Australia as a child. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Arts Communication Writing & Contemporary Cultures. Her quest for profound answers led her to travel extensively, explore various cultures, and engage in deep contemplation. Her last job, working with linguistically and culturally diverse communities in Aged Care services, underscored for her the first Buddha’s first Noble Truth. 

She was guided by her spiritual parents, Bhante Mahinda and Sister Sumitra from the Aloka Meditation Centre, as well as Ajahn Sujato, and many other monastics including those in the Vajrayana tradition. 

After completion of the 3 yr Ariya Monastic & Laity Training Program (AMLTP) with Ven. Ayya Sumangala Bhikkhuni, Abbess of Ariya Vihara, Malaysia, she took ordination with Ven. Ayya Santini Bhikkhuni Mahatheri with the United Theravada Bhikkhuni Sangha International UTBSI in 2022 at Bodhgaya, India.
