On February 23rd 2018, just before the start of the International Order Convention in India two Mitras - one man and one woman - were ordained in Bodhgaya. This Newsbyte from Clear Vision gives us a flavour of that occasion and, amidst the busyness and noise around the Mahabodhi Temple, we get a sense of following in the footsteps of the Buddha as Mokshasara and Shramanveer join the Triratna Buddhist Order.
