Tisarana is a monastery in the Thai forest tradition of Theravāda Buddhism. It is located 15km from Perth in the countryside a little more than an hour southwest of Ottawa, Canada.
The monastery is a residence for Buddhist monks and those who wish to train as Buddhist monks. It also functions as a spiritual sanctuary for interested friends who may visit for varying periods of time. Ajahn Vīradhammo is the resident senior monk at Tisarana.
