Here is a wonderful and inspiring documentary made by Michael Fletcher-Jones for Buddhist Door in Hong Kong about the founding and growth of the Dhammasāra Nuns Monastery in Perth, Western Australia.
It features extended interviews with Ajahn Brahm, Ven Hasapanna and Ven Nirodha (Joint Abbesses of Dhammasāra), as well as the celebrations surrounding Ajahn Brahm’s 60th Birthday Party.
If you feel inspired to support the nuns and their projects at Dhammasāra, please visit this page where you can make different types of donations according to your wishes.
On invitation Ajahn Brahm spoke at the Buddhist Maha Vihara, Brickfields, in Kuala Lumpur about why he came to support the reintroduction of the Bhikkhuni ordination, and the advantages of having the Sasana standing on four pillars.
The full title of the talk was: Is there wholehearted support for the re-establishment of the Bhikkhuni Sangha from the Bhikkhu Sangha? Ajahn is as entertaining as always and uses his unique style of presentation to get a serious message across.
The newly formed Support Network held its first formal meeting at Brickfields just before this talk, and Ajahn asked Bhante Anandajoti to speak about the network during question time. Also Ayya Upekkha, one of the founders of the Network, was asked to speak about why she wanted to become a Bhikkhuni.
The video was recorded and edited by Teik Leong Lim, who gave permission for the Network to upload it.
