My next guest, Buddhist Monk Dr. Bhante Saranapala, is known as the urban Buddhist Monk, and is a guest I was eager to interview to see how intuition was seen from a Buddhist perspective, and how it played a role in his life.

His intuition led him to Buddhism at a young age, and has continued to help him make decisions that not only move his life forward, but he has been able to affect the lives of thousands of others through his teaching, speaking opportunities and outreach efforts.

Dr. Saranapala has been a monk in residence in Toronto, Canada for over 20 years, attracting a very supportive following, helping many find inner peace and winning a number of awards for his work.
