On Friday the 9th of December, Vinay Khirade was ordained at Cambridge Buddhist Centre in a Public ordination. Vinay Khirade was given the Dharma name Akshayadipa, a Sanskrit name meaning 'He who gives inexhaustible light'.
Akshayadipa's Public Preceptor on the evening was Arthrapriya and his Private Preceptor was Arthasiddhi.
The event was witnessed by Akshayadipa's friends and family.
A beautiful evening of celebration and Sangha.
Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
