Saturday March 18th: Subhadramati and friends​ celebrating equal ordination for women 

To celebrate this year’s International Women’s Day, we’re teaming up with Manchester Buddhist Centre in the UK to shine a spotlight on one of Triratna’s distinctive emphases – equal ordination for women. In fact, when Sangharakshita our founder created our Order in 1968 the very first person to be ordained was a woman.

Subhadramati, Dhammadinna, Dayanandi and friends will tell this 55 year history through their personal experiences. And we’ll hear what’s needed for the next 55 years to respond to the aspirations of women around the world, through Tiratanaloka Unlimited.

Please join us to hear how women have created retreat centres such as Taraloka and Tiratanaloka, enabling women to deepen their Dharma lives, train for ordination, and become a force for good in the world.

About the event

Everyone is welcome for this wonderful opportunity to hear from some of the most senior and respected members of the Triratna Buddhist Order. Subhadramati currently lives at Tiratanaloka Retreat Centre and is leading their ambitious and exciting project to find a new, much bigger home – Tiratanaloka Unlimited.
