Sister Bodhipala, formerly known as Renée Pan, came to Amaravati shortly after offering her life to the Buddha as a nun – giving up political and social work in her native Cambodia, having already left the children she’d raised to adulthood and a successful career in America.
For the past decade she has been a member of the nuns’ community at Amaravati.
