Dear friends,

I am delighted to announce that the former Don Lawson was publicly ordained on 10th December at the Wellington Buddhist Centre.

He becomes Surangamamati, ‘He who has a mind of heroic progress’ .  There is an accent above the ’s’, long ‘u’ and a dot over the ‘n’.

Registered spelling Shurangamamati. 

His private preceptor is Purna and his public preceptor is Ratnavyuha.

With Metta,
