Venerable Ruciro

Ruciro Bhikkhu was born near London, UK, in 1978. He started working as a Physiotherapist in a hospital in 2003, and this coincided with him beginning Buddhist meditation practice. In 2012, he ordained as an Anagarika at Amaravati Buddhist monastery in the UK, and ordained as a Bhikkhu in 2014, with Ajahn Amaro as preceptor. He was very inspired by Luang Por Viradhammo, who led a retreat at Amaravati, and therefore starting from November 2019 plans to live at Tisarana monastery for at least one year.
