Shantamani is Estonia’s newest Order Member, ordained in Talinn in May 2022.

Our supporters helped make Shantamani’s ordination possible, through funding Vajragupta’s regular visits to Estonia, which enabled their spiritual friendship to grow.

In this short film made just after Shantamani’s ordination, he tells us that his connection with Vajragupta, who became his Private Preceptor, would have unlikely developed without Vajragupta’s regular FutureDharma-funded visits to Estonia in the last few years. These visits would not have been possible without the interest and support of FutureDharma Fund.

Shantamani means ‘He who is a peaceful jewel.’

Sadhu, sadhu, sadhu!
