Retreat with Ajahn Viradhammo (Non-residential)

May 22 - May 23

Tisarana Buddha In The Morning Sun

This retreat will include meditation instruction, group chants, and devotional practice. A wonderful opportunity to practise in this ancient tradition that has transmitted the priceless teaching of liberation to us through two and a half millennia.

Ajahn Viradhammo
Ajahn Viradhammo is the founder and abbot of Tisarana Buddhist Monastery in Perth, Ontario. He took bhikkhu (monastic) ordination in Thailand in 1974 at Wat Pah Pong with Ajahn Chah. He was one of the first residents at Wat Pah Nanachat, the international monastery in northeast Thailand. In 1977, he was asked by Ajahn Chah to join Ajahn Sumedho at the Hampstead Vihara in London. Later, he was involved in the establishment of both the Chithurst and Harnham monasteries in the UK. In 1985, he moved to New Zealand, where he lived for 10 years, setting up Bodhinyanarama monastery. In 1995 he went to the UK to assist Ajahn Sumedho at Amaravati and stayed for four years before returning to New Zealand, where he lived until 2002. After caring for his mother for nine years in Ottawa, he is now resident full-time at Tisarana.
