The Buddha taught us that everything is impermanent, changing, unreliable. Tilorien Monastrery setup its iSangha after receiving a request from a healthcare worker in Germany meeting the shifting, uncertain circumstances the Covid-19 pandemic has brought to so many of us across the global. Although meeting in person might not be possible for an indefinite period, we are still able to meditate and discuss the Dhamma together with our friends on the path.

Now that many countries are in lockdown or have stringent regulations into place to slow the spread of the Coronavirus, we need connection more than ever. We can take this opportunity to put the Buddha’s teachings into action and help each other to deal with the stress and uncertainty of these times; support each other, especially the vulnerable, with our kind deeds and make time for meditation, listening to Dhamma teachings and joining together with spiritual friends online.

Times like these can be the most valuable for our growth in the Dhamma and cultivation of the factors of the noble eightfold path, and we warmly invite you to join us in the Tilorien iSangha.
