On 9th August at the Bor Dharan retreat centre near Nagpur in India, Gurbej Cchahal Singh was publicly ordained by Dhammachari Chandrasil. His private ordination was conducted over a month earlier at the Bhaja retreat centre by Dhammachari Subhuti and he was given the name Kushalveer (Indian spelling) - Kusalavira (Western spelling) - ‘ethical or skilful hero’. The ordination was very noteworthy in that Kushalveer is the first Indian Order member who comes from Punjab.
