Dear Friends,

On the 6th August around 80 sangha members, friends and family, attended the Public Ordination of Marion Pidgeon of the Mid-Essex Sangha. The ceremony took place in the lovely new Mid-Essex Buddhist Centre in Chelmsford, England.

Marion Pidgeon became Abhayavani (long 4th ‘a’ and long ‘i’. Dot under the ’n’), a Sanskrit name meaning “The Fearless Voiced One”.

Registered spelling Abhayavani.
Private Preceptor Vanaraji
Public Preceptor Parami

With metta,


Abhayavani, "The Fearless Voiced One"
