Tan Sirimedho

Sirimedho Bhikkhu was born in Ontario to a Mennonite family and raised in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. After returning to Ontario, his spiritual search took him on a pilgrimage to India and a couple of long retreats at the Insight Meditation Society (IMS). This culminated in a strong desire to ordain. Unfortunately, during this time he became chronically ill. After many years, during which he visited Tisarana and forest monasteries regularly, he recovered well enough to pursue ordination. He took on Anagarika precepts at Tisarana in January 2017, ordained as a Samanera (novice) in December 2017 in Chennai, India, and was accepted into the Bhikkhu Sangha on September 16, 2018, with Luang Por Viradhammo as Preceptor.

This session is available on Zoom at our regular Sunday morning Zoom link: Sunday Morning Zoom

Looking forward to seeing you there.
