Dear Friends,
Please join us in welcoming our venerable Ayya Tathaaloka back to Fremont. Ayya Tathaaloka will be coming down from our Aranya Bodhi Forest Hermitage with Sayalay Santacari for a half-month stay at the Bodhi House from June 28th thru to 20th July.

During her stay, Ayya Tathaaloka plans to visit places around the area recommended for our new monastery/vihara. Stay tuned for further news on this.

Sharing joy,
Metta from your friends at and around the Bodhi House
