Dear Venerable Monastics and Dhamma friends,

Our regular Sunday and Tuesday programs this week will be Ayya Brahmavara's final teachings with us for our 2023 Winter Retreat (due to the 90 day limit on her ESTA Visa Waiver to stay in the US), and it will be a special chance for us all to express our gratitude. Our Dhammadharini residents in particular would like to say how enormously grateful we are for all of the great teachings during these past three months amazingly *together with* serving as retreat manager at Dhammadharini Monastery for almost the whole retreat -- Anumodana! to her with so much love, appreciation and gratitude.

Welcome to join us for any of these final programs! See links below for registration information:
If joining from afar, please note: the time and dates above are given in Pacific Daylight Time (in PDT, not PST) for San Francisco, California, USA. You can use a time zone converter to find your local times.

If anyone would like to make a donation in Ayya Brahmavara's name, they can do so at, or see our Useful Things List. For those who would like to continue to follow her teachings, you can find them on her website: We will hope to see her again (TBD), at least very briefly here, at the time of the next upcoming Bhikkhuni Ordination with Dhammadharini. And people can look out for her at Empty Cloud with Buddhist Insights in NJ (New Jersey) and Dhammatiriya in NZ (New Zealand) in the coming year.

Wishing her many blessings on her upcoming travels!

With metta, 
the Dhammadharini Community

P.S. We expect Ayya Suvijjana to be leading our final week of retreat programs at Dhammadharini Monastery as she emerges from these last months of retreat at Aranya Bodhi, and Ayya Tathaloka will be offering the final Full Moon Night Uposatha Program on April 5th.
