Due to his active involvement in Drug Abuse Prevention, he was honoured as an International delegate of Drug Watch International (USA). He was previously residing at Wat Phikulthong Vararam Buddhist Temple, Tumpat, Kelantan and in 2006 was assigned by Kelantan Sangha Council to reside at Uttamayanmuni Buddhist Temple, Singapore in order to carry on the Buddhist missionary activities.   As assistant Abbot of UBT, he worked hard on bringing awareness of the Dhamma to the temple’s devotees and initiated several activities along this line.  Through his relentless effort and the help and support of keen Dhamma followers, he gradually led UBT from its neglected existence to the presently active Dhamma environment.  The temple is now frequented by devotees from all walks of life participating in the various dhamma activities.

On 10 November 2007, in recognition of his effort, Phra Phian Saccavaro was officially appointed the Abbot of  Uttamayanmuni Singapore by The Sangha Committee of Singapore.

On 17 December 2008, he became the youngest Phrakru in the Theravada Buddhist Cycle.  Though young, his efforts and capability were undeniable.  This coupled with recommendation by Chao Khun of Wat Ananda (head of The Singapore Theravada Sangha  Community) and testimonials from various authoritative Sangha members, the royal monastic title of Phrakhru was conferred upon him by 9 Somdechs in Bangkok, Thailand, the Highest Sangha Council.  Traditionally, the Royal Monastic title of Phrakhru was awarded to Bhikkhu who has completed at least 10 Phansa, and having served as Abbot for 5 years.  He has only been abbot for just over a year.  His effort and diligence have earned him this title and it was indeed an occasion for rejoice for Uttamayanmuni Buddhist Temple and its devotees.
