Candradasa

Candradasa

Candradasa was ordained in 2001. He is from Scotland and has lived in New Hampshire since 2006. He is on the council of the Portsmouth Buddhist Center and is also the Director of Dharmachakra, which produces Free Buddhist Audio and Triratna’s main website, The Buddhist Centre Online.
His name means “Slave of the Moon,” referencing (amongst other things) the lines about the Bodhicitta in Shantideva’s Bodhicaryavatara: ‘In devotion I offer myself as your slave…’ and ‘It is the heart’s waxing moon, cooling the heat of passion.’ He tries – sometimes successfully – to live up to this!
