I am very grateful to Ayyā Dhammanandā for providing these posters by Kanjana Suthikul showing some of the recent ordinations that have occurred in Thailand. Let us all rejoice in seeing these women going-forth (descriptions are below the posters).
Dec.5, 2011: Samaṇerī asking forgiveness from her 84-year old mother, who had traveled some 800 kms to see her daughter ordained. She also had the chance to offer a bowl to her newly ordained daughter. At Songdhammakalyani Monastery, Nakhon Pathom.
Tomorrow the Sakyadhita Conference for this year, the 12th of its existence will take place in Bangkok from June 12th – 18th and Barbara Yen, who is now closely associated with our Support Network, will be attending.
Hopefully she will be able to share with others at the Conference and let them know of the Network and how it can help both lay people wanting to contact nuns, and also how nuns can help the lay. We also look forward to reading her reports here.
Please check the Sakyadhita website http://www.sakyadhita.org/ for details and information on the Conference and see if you can get along to attend some of the sessions if you are able.
