We are delighted to announce that Itir Binay from Melbourne, Australia was publicly ordained in Melbourne on Saturday 28th March, 2020.

Ex-Itir becomes Varadhī. Her name means ”She who has the highest wisdom”. (Westernised spelling: Varadhi). Her Public Preceptor is Maitripala and her Private Preceptor is Chittaprabha.

The ceremony was witnessed by over 100 members of the Melbourne Sangha live on Zoom. You can watch a recording of the ceremony here which ends with a beautiful wave of sadhus around the world.

Saddhu Varadhi, it was so special to see all that happiness from people around the world when you had this beautiful ceremony to be ordained. It moved me to tears feeling connected as you are the first of our group Akashavana april-july 2020. It gave trust that it is going to happen for us. One day, one time in Triratna. Wonderfull, still going on together with others in the Sangha
