Vesak online – A Day of Celebration and Contemplation at iSangha on 9th May

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. You can find out more about them by visiting: and

Time: 9.30am-4.30pm CEST (see here for other time zones ).

The day is offered out of gratitude and generosity and made possible with kind support of Vipassana-Meditation Centre Groningen and Amsterdam Insight Meditation. If you feel moved to give dana, you can offer to Tilorien Monastery, stating ‘iSangha’ via:
