Ajahn Ahimsako was born near San Francisco, California in 1959, but spent most of his life, before becoming a monk, living in other countries and pursuing a career in classical ballet as a dancer, teacher and educator. While living in England he travelled to Sri Lanka, where he became interested in Buddhism. This prompted him to begin visiting the London Buddhist Vihara and Amaravati Buddhist Monastery. He began his monastic life in 2002 at Abhayagiri Buddhist Monastery in California and received upasampada (bhikkhu ordination) in 2004 with Luang Por Pasanno as preceptor.
