We are delighted to announce a Public Ordination that took place at the Manchester Buddhist Centre on 23rd May 2021. The ceremony was conducted in the Lotus Hall with a restricted number of sangha and family members attending. 

The new Dharmachari was privately ordained on a private retreat with his preceptor Aparājita, and the Public Preceptor was Padmavajra:

Barrie Stanhope from Southport, in North-West England, becomes Buddhamaitrī. He who has the friendliness of the Buddha.
