Ayya Yeshe speaks at iSangha on 11th April – Resilience and Radical Compassion for Hard Times

You are very warmly invited to join Ayya Yeshe from Australia at the Tilorien iSangha ( for a Dhamma Talk, meditation and discussion on Saturday 11th April from 9.30-11am CEST.

Ayya Yeshe Chodron ordained as a nun in 2001 at the age of 23. She discovered Buddhism whilst travelling in Nepal and India on a search for the meaning of life. She trained under many teachers and is a well-known Dhamma speaker. She is often referred to as “nun of the slums” for her work with women and children in the slums in India, empowering some of the poorest and most oppressed communities in the world to break the cycle of poverty and oppression.

How can we dig deep into Dharma in the face of overwhelming challenges? Ayya Yeshe will share how she coped radical changes in her life – from lay life with independence and money to a monastic of very limited means and many rules to follow, from living in the West to living in an Indian slum for a decade. What are the lessons of compassion, simplicity, letting go, resilience that we can learn from Dharma and people who live in difficult conditions at this time? What do the Buddhist teachings say about Epidemics?

More on Ayya Yeshe can be found here:
Because of the time difference with Australia, the regular Friday night iSangha meeting on 10th April is moved to Saturday morning 11th April.
