Zen came across Buddhism as a university student in New Zealand in 2001 and immediately felt an affinity to the teachings of the Buddha. He worked as a computer programmer and subsequently opened a restaurant business in his home country of Fiji. He attended his first Vipassana meditation retreat in New Zealand in 2008 and was immediately amazed by the immense benefits of combined Buddhist meditation practice and ethics. Since then, he has attended several extended meditation retreats in Australia and has organised two Vipassanacourses in Fiji. His main interests include the application of Buddhism in daily life and in business and the propagation of the Buddha’s teachings in the Pacific.
