Between 1978 to 1981, he studied at Yangon Arts and Science University and  graduated with a B.Sc. Degree in Physics, with Distinction in Electronics. Later, in 1987, he obtained a R.L. Degree and practised as a registered lawyer or Registered High Court Pleader in Myanmar.

However, very soon thereafter, he decided that the worldly life was not suitable for him. Thus, on 30th May 1988 and with the permission and support of his parents, he was ordained as a monk by Aggamahāpaṇḍita Baddanta Naginda at the Khanda Ordination Hall of Wezayandar Monastery in Danyingon Quarter, Moulmein.
