A New Bhikkhuni

Ayya Ahimsa.jpg

We all remember our dear Dhamma sister, Ayya Ahimsa, who spent four years helping our community, training as a nun, and growing in the Dhamma at Sati Saraniya Hermitage before moving to Aloka Vihara, California.

On August 26th, she took full ordination as a bhikkhuni with Ayya Gunasari of Mahapajapati Monastery as her preceptor and Ayyas Anandabodhi and Santacitta of Aloka Vihara as her teachers.

The auspicious occasion of Ayya Ahimsa’s beautiful ordination ceremony was attended by many bhikkhus and bhikkhunis gathered together from all over the USA. Ayya Medhanandi travelled there to participate and convey our blessings and joyful wishes to Ayya Ahimsa and the Bhikkhuni Sangha in California.

Anumodana, we all rejoice with her!
