Phalanyani Daniela (Pali name: Phalañani), née, Daniela Doerpinghaus, later: El Aidi (b. 1959- ) is a former actress and comedian. She left the stage and audience some years ago to live a peaceful and quiet life in a small village in Spain.
She has a semi-ordination as a Mae chee in Thailand and practices the 8 precepts and also keeps the 10 precepts and other bhikkhuni rules as much as possible. Her monastery in Thailand is looking to send her soon to another country for the full ordination as a bhikkhuni.
