Khantipalo

Khantipalo (Laurence Mills), born in London in 1932, read a book on Buddhism during his national service on the Suez Canal which inspired a lifelong interest in Buddhist studies.

As a result he travelled to India and South-East Asia, eventually ordaining as a monk in the Thai Dhammayuttika Nikaya and became an extremely accomplished Pali scholar and published a great many influential books and articles on Buddhism.

After thirty years as a Theravada monk, including extended periods as a forest hermit, he disrobed to pursue further research into Mahayana Buddhism, in particular the Tibetan Dzogchen tradition. In 1973 he established Wat Buddha Dhamma in New South Wales, and in 1991 he established the Bodhicitta Buddhist Centre in Queensland. He is one of the founding fathers of Buddhism in Australia and is well known for his inspirational practice and teaching.
