Hosted by Tilorien Monastery’s iSangha online

Saturday, 9th May 9.30am-4.30pm

Dear friends,

You are warmly invited to join us online for Vesak, the most important celebration in the Theravada Buddhist calendar, which marks the birth, enlightenment and passing away (paranibbana) of the Buddha.

Vesak is a wonderful occasion for coming together. Our intention for the day is to share and practice in community and to contemplate the Buddha, Dhamma and the Sangha in gratitude and joy. There will be chanting, silent meditation, movement and sharing.

The day will be guided by Ayya Anopama and Riët Aarsse. To find out more about them visit:

Registration: please send a message via and state ‘Vesak’ in the subject line. You will then receive further details for participation and online access. Places are limited.

The day is offered out of gratitude and generosity. If you feel moved to give dana, you can offer to Tilorien Monastery, stating ‘iSangha’;

The day is made possible with kind support of Vipassana-Meditation Centre Groningen and Amsterdam Inzichtmeditatie.

With all best wishes and much metta

Riët Aarsse
