Ordination of four more bhikkuni nuns

Sunday 27th April 2014 saw another milestone in the growth of the WA Theravadan nun order. The number of fully ordained nuns grew by four in a two-part ordination procedure. The first part was performed at the Dhammasara Nuns Monastery at Gidgeganup on the bare concrete slab of the future main Dhamma hall. The preceptor was a senior bhikkuni nun from Indonesia.

The ordination was later confirmed at Bodhinyana monks monastery at Serpentine, led by their abbott Ven. Ajahn Brahmavamso Thero. The new number of fully ordained nuns are now qualified to recite the monastic rules (pathimokha) as an independent community on a regular basis.
