Venerable Metteyya Sakyaputta
Vice Chairperson of Lumbini Development Trust
At age 15, Venerable Metteyya (previously known as Awadhesh Tripathi) began building the Metta School with his dedicated friends, calling it ‘A Seed of Compassion.’ Now this little seed has grown up like a little banyan tree! It provides help and education to over 250 students and encourages many young volunteers to spread the gift of education for the needy children of Lumbini area. Now we are proud to say that he is the Director of the Metta School and is also their spiritual refuge..
