Sangha Night: What is Ordination?

Tuesday 20th Oct 2020 - 7.15pm to 9.15pm

Following on from our 'Why I am a Mitra' event, this evening will be dedicated to exploring what it means to be ordained in the Triratna Buddhist community.

Asking for Ordination is to make a declaration of your desire to make a definite and life-changing commitment to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, within the context of the Triratna Buddhist Order. It is a deeply significant step in a person's Dharma life.

To help us explore this rich and important area we'll be hearing from Isabelle and David, both Mitras who have asked for ordination, talking about why they asked for ordination and the impact that this has had on their Dharma lives. We also have the great privilege to have Sanghadevi, who has been ordained for over forty years and is both a public and private preceptor, with us to reflect on the significance of ordination.

The evening is open to everyone, and not just those who are interested in asking for ordination!
