Event description

Please join us for a 9 day retreat conducted by Venerable Bodhicitta (Nisala Arana) in conjunction with the Paramitha Buddhist Viharaya.

Venerable Bodhicitta has conducted numerous meditation retreats, lectures, Dhamma talks and discussions in Australia, Malaysia and Sri Lanka. She is a renowned meditation teacher with over 25 years of experience and is currently resident in Melbourne.

Venerable Bodhicitta has practiced meditation from childhood; however her career as a medical scientist in Australia met a surprising turn of events when the Dhamma set her view of life in a different paradigm. Thus began her homelessness and a clear and meaningful path of full-time commitment to spiritual endeavour.
