Many of you have been following the progress of Tilorien monastery closely and given much spiritual, material, and financial support to us in the last years.
I am very sad, but I have to let you all know that I left Tilorien today. It was a very difficult decision for me, but in the end, Ayya Vimala and I both agreed that it would be better if I continue my practise elsewhere. I’m not sure yet where I’ll be going but I think I may end up in Sri Lanka.
Thank you all for supporting us. I am very grateful to have met so many great dhamma practitioners through this project. May your generosity lead you all to peace, happiness, and eventually to nibbana.
I’ve been gazing at the screen for some while, and still don’t quite know what to say. I’ve concluded metta is better than saying anything, so here’s my humble addition to the metta heap for now and the onward journey.

Best wishes, venerable. Change can be challenging but brings new opportunities. Lots of metta and all the good vibes, may you find a good place and be well supported.
I’d love to see more of you doodles, so please keep them coming from wherever you are!
And its good that we can keep in touch with you on D&D. Your contribution with posts like this ‘thought experiment’ was a really interesting thing for me to see and many others felt the same: Thought experiment - a genderless vinaya
I just wanted to add that I have arrived in Kandy, Sri Lanka today. Coming from wintery Europe, the heat will take a little getting used to but otherwise I’m very happy to be here. The place has a strong peaceful energy and I’m very blessed to be here.
If anyone is in Sri Lanka or planning to visit, please drop me a line.
I just spent a little time noodling around in Google Street View in Kandy. How fortunate you are to be in such a lovely and historically significant location with many important Buddhist sites. May you find peace and tranquility there!
