I’m Viriyalila. I was ordained in 2005, and live just north of Boston, Massachusetts (USA).

By parami on Wed, 10 Mar, 2021 - 11:27

Hi, I’m Parami and, in 1980, I was ordained on a weekend retreat by Sangharakshita. I live in Glasgow, Scotland on my own in a flat in a high rise block in a very working class area (back to my roots). I’m lucky that 3 other Dharmacharinis (Order Members) live in the same high rise block and, before lockdown, we meditated together a couple of mornings a week. A friend called it a vertical community. My days are varied with different...
