Mira completed the entire 18 Full Study Courses of the Asian Classics Institute (ACI) curriculum. Venerable Marut led her final oral exam. Mira was asked questions by attendees from a pool of 100 questions taken from the 18 courses. After successfully answering a series of questions, she gave her first official teaching in respect to the centuries-old tradition. Mahasukha has gained a brilliant new teacher.
