Dear friends,

I’m very pleased to announce that, in a well attended ceremony at the Manchester Buddhist Centre on 13th August 2023, Julie Franklin became Dharmacharini Aryatara.

Aryatara is a Sanskrit name meaning “Noble Saviouress”. The first, third and fourth a’s are long. 

The Private Preceptor was Suryaka and Dayanandi was the Public Preceptor.    

Sadhu! Sadhu! Sadhu!
