At 2.00pm Sāmaṇeras Issaro, Manuñño, and Niddaro will request full acceptance into the Bhikkhu Sangha. The ceremony will take place in the temple, and the new Bhikkhus will receive visitors in the sala afterwards. All are welcome to attend.
This is a very auspicious day because it falls on the full moon of July which is Āsāḷhā Pūjā, the commemoration of the Buddha’s first sermon. Also it is Luang Por Sumedho’s 84th birthday, Ācariya Pūjā day.
