Sati Saraniya Hermitage is a Theravada Buddhist sanctuary and monastic residence for women training in the bhikkhuni lineage, the first of its kind in Canada. Still a fledgling project, it was conceived in April, 2007, during Ayya Medhanandi's second teaching visit to Ottawa. After sharing ideas about her vision, a group of supporters from Ottawa and Toronto invited her back and offered to help 'plant the seed' for establishing a base in Ontario.
