Tejananda - Tejananda has been practising Buddhism and meditation for over 30 years and a member of the WBO since 1980. Since becoming an Order member, he has worked in a vegetarian café in Croydon, helped establish the Bristol Buddhist Centre, worked for the Karuna Trust, written a book introducing the fundamentals of Buddhism ' The Buddhist Path to Awakening ' and taught meditation and Dharma in many parts of the UK, Europe and the USA.

He has been part of the resident / teaching team at Vajraloka retreat centre in Wales since 1995 and became chairman of the centre in 2001.

‘You don’t have to justify your existence by doing things which are useful’- Sangharakshita
