On Saturday August 12 you are warmly invited to join us for the ordination ceremonies for two members of the Sangha here at Temple: Samanera Candapanyo will take upasampada to become a bhikkhu (monk), and Anagarika Michael will take pabbajja to become a samanera (novice).
Luang Por Viradhammo, abbot of Tisarana Monastery in Canada, will be here to act as preceptor for the two candidates.
The event will begin at 1 p.m. Many people may wish to join in the meal offering at 11 a.m. and stay through to witness the event, and make offerings afterwards to the newly minted samanas. As always, you are welcome to arrive at any time during the morning or day.
