Siladhara Pabbajja, or "Nuns’ Ordination" at Amaravati

Today, the 28th March 2010, there will be a Siladhara Pabbajja, or "Nuns’ Ordination" at Amaravati.

Anagarika Miriam and Anagarika Soledad will approach the Sangha to request the Going Forth, with Venerable Ajahn Sumedho as Preceptor.

It's good to see more women "going forth" but sad that this is still limited and not an ordination of full Bhikkhunis. Yet it's worth remembering that the women would not even be given this status if not for Ajahn Sumedho.
