Prajñahridaya first encountered Triratna in 2013 aged 25. A year later he realised that this was what he wanted to commit his life to, and so after taking part in the 5 month Dharma Life course at Adhisthana he moved to Padmaloka Men's Retreat Centre to live, practice and serve in community and team based right livelihood. He was ordained in April 2018 at Guhyaloka and given the name 'Prajñahridaya', which means 'He who places his Heart in Wisdom'. Since then has continued to work at Padmaloka as the support team manager.
