Ven. Bodhicitta, who has been doing such a lot of good work in Malaysia this year, leading retreats and generally giving Dhamma teachings, will be leading a retreat in both English and Sinhala languages in Melbourne in December. See the following poster for details.
We rejoice to bring you the following news:
The Dhammasara Nuns’ Monastery is delighted to announce that their first Bhikkhuni Ordination will take place at Dhammasara on Thursday, 1st March 2012 in the morning at 8am, before dana.
Candidates: Samaneri Pasada from Santi Forest Monastery, NSW and Samaneri Nissara from Nirodharam Meditation Centre, Thailand. Both presently staying at Dhammasara Nuns’ Monastery.
This is coming about at short notice due to a brief visit of our Pavatini (Preceptor), Venerable Tathaaloka Bhikkhuni Theri, from USA. It will be followed by a dana at Dhammasara.
In the late afternoon, the two one-side ordained Bhikkhunis will present themselves to the Bhikkhu Sangha at Bodhinyana Monks Monastery, Serpentine for a brief Sangha Kamma (Ceremony) to confirm the ordination (the afternoon time yet to be determined).
Both events are open to our supporters and friends.
Ven. Nirodha & Ven. Hasapanna
