The Buddha taught us that everything is impermanent, changing, unreliable. Tilorien Monastery set up its iSangha to meet the shifting, uncertain circumstances the Covid-19 pandemic brought so many of us across the globe as we moved into lockdown. More recently, restrictions have been eased in many countries, however, meeting in person is still not possible for many. Regardless, we are still able to meditate and discuss the Dhamma together with our friends on the path.
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.
The times given below are local to Belgium (CET). To find times for where you are, click on an event title.

If you are on lockdown retreat, or just want a good start or end of the day, we hope our daily meditation sessions will give you a supportive framework, and likewise that the rest of our programme benefits your practice whether you are just dropping in, or are an iSangha regular.
For those of who would like to follow the morning and evening chanting, our chanting book is available for download. You can just sit and listen to the chantings or participate if you like.
