Ayya Upekkha Leading International Bhikkhuni Day in Singapore

The 1st International Bhikkhuni Day was celebrated in Singapore at the Singapore Buddhist Fellowship by Ayya Upekkha, Bhante K. Gunaratana and Venerable Bhikkhuni Faxun and the many devotess who joined in the celebration.

Ayya reports that the feedback received was very encouraging. With such awareness raised, we hope that recognition and support for Theravāda bhikkhunis will reach many bhikkhuni centres worldwide as and when needed.

May this annual event grow by the year, with more Bhikkhunis and more monks and lay people celebrating.
