Speaker: Bhante Ānanda (Joining online)

Cost: By Donation

In this illuminating talk, Bhante Ananda explores the transformative power of Upekkha (equanimity) as a vehicle of enlightenment. Through insightful teachings of the Buddha and practical wisdom, he reveals how cultivating equanimity enables us to find balance, freedom, and spiritual liberation. Join the talk as he guides you on a journey of embracing the present moment with acceptance, letting go of attachments, and experiencing the profound serenity that resides within.

About the speaker: Bhante Ānanda is a Canadian Buddhist monk trained in the Teaching and Way of Life (Dhamma-Vinaya) of early Buddhism. Having received his going-forth from Bhante Vimalaramsi and completing full ordination in Sri Lanka, he aims to embody the essence of the Buddha’s instructions.

Emphasising “Natural Samādhi,” Bhante Ānanda teaches the development of mental collectedness through uplifting the mind and relaxing bodily tension. He guides practitioners through Loving-Kindness meditation, the four Brahmavihāras, Satipatthāna, and culminating in Vimutti—mental liberation.

While dividing his time between Sri Lanka, the Heartwood Hermitage in British Columbia, and the Indian Himalayas, Bhante Ānanda leads retreats worldwide. Explore his teachings at: https://heartdhamma.love
