About Bhante Assaji: 

Bhante Assaji became an ordained monk in 2002 at the age of 10 in Sri Lanka. He is now an esteemed monastic at Blue Lotus Buddhist Temple in Woodstock, IL. Prior to his arrival in the United States in 2018, he was a teacher in his monastery in Sri Lanka. While he was teaching, he gained an enormous amount of knowledge and a passion for guiding and proving resources to his students. He studied Sanskrit and Pali (the ancient language of the Buddha) more than 20 years ago and has taught classes on Sanskrit specifically. In 2014 he obtained his master’s degree in Pali and Sanskrit. The origin of the language has great significance, and he enjoys sharing his skills with those who are interested. At Blue Lotus Temple, he is a resident monk and guides meditation up to 3 days a week for the community. He is also a resource for visiting students, newcomers, and those who are interested in expanding their meditation practice. He is devoted to teaching the Dhamma and promotes loving-kindness in his meditations. In his free time, he enjoys being outdoors and exploring our community. He is also a talented graphic designer and is currently in school for his degree.

Praise: “I have been practicing with Julia for more than a year and a half. Julia instructs me in therapeutic yoga because of my physical limitations. Through this, I have come to utilize breathing, meditative, and body movements to help with pain, calm, strengthen, and move more freely. Her teachings and our discussions have opened my mind to look at life and all that entails with a different view. If you are fortunate to have the opportunity to study with Julia, don’t pass it up.” -Mark V.
