Venerable Shi Chun Nian is from Bao Guang Fo Tang Temple, a Buddhist Nunnery at Thomson. Previously a Malaysian, she came to do her tertiary education in Singapore and graduated from NUS in 1995 with a Bachelor of Social Sciences (Hons). She took up the robes in Singapore in 1999 and was ordained under the tutelage of Venerable Sek Te Yuan, at the age of 27.
After her ordination, Venerable studied at the International Theravada Buddhist Missionary University in Myanmar from 2000 to 2004 and obtained a BA in Buddhist Studies. She was exposed to a balanced system of training, comprising both theory and practice.
