Dear Dhamma Sisters and Brothers,
Sukhi hotu! It’s time to touch base with everyone…
We are pleased to inform you that Gotami Vihara is again remembering International Bhikkhuni Day and we have great pleasure to invite you to celebrate with us. It is again time to honour prominent bhikkhunis in their unique achievements and contribution in upholding the Fourfold Assembly and preserving the Buddha sasana.
This year, our theme will be on ‘Honouring Eminent Asian Buddhist Women in the Modern Era.’ We will remember and recognise them for their courage and resilience in overcoming great odds and challenges to be a renunciant…
In conjunction with IBD, we are organising a pindapatta for renunciants. We wish to invite you to join us in this event and to make it a meaningful and successful one.
We also need many volunteers. Bring your family and give them the opportunity to assist in the pindapatta and to offer vegetarian food dana to the Sangha. Let us all rejoice in a day of giving and receiving, of listening and sharing. So keep the date free!
We also wish to take the opportunity to congratulate Venerable Sumangala for a successful samaneri ordination by Ayya Santini in Indonesia on 15 July, 2014.
