The Venerable teaches the Buddhist Dharma according to the original intent of the Buddha, gaining a thorough understanding of both the Theravadin and Mahayanist traditions, through a comprehensive study and research into the earliest Buddhist Agama scriptures; with good personal experiences particularly in Prajna (wisdom), the Middle Way, Mahaprajnaparamita-Sastra, Dasabhumika-Vibhasa-Sastra, Saddharma-Pundarika, etc.
The Venerable places emphasis on delivering his teachings in a way that benefits both the teacher and his students, through developing his followers’ abilities to think independently, and expressing the profound in simple, easy-to-understand language, allowing everyone to learn and apply the extensive and profound Buddhist Dharma in their daily lives.
