On the 6th August around 80 sangha members, friends and family, attended the Public Ordination of Marion Pidgeon of the Mid-Essex Sangha. The ceremony took place in the lovely new Mid-Essex Buddhist Centre in Chelmsford, England.
Marion Pidgeon became Abhayavani (long 4th ‘a’ and long ‘i’. Dot under the ’n’), a Sanskrit name meaning “The Fearless Voiced One”.
Registered spelling Abhayavani. Private Preceptor Vanaraji Public Preceptor Parami
After 5 years in rented buildings that we have now outgrown, we are planning a secure home for our community in our own property. We are almost in a position to go ahead with buying a Centre. We are still short of funds to secure a property.
We have a Just Giving Page to collect the remaining funds and we would be grateful if you could share this page as wide as you can. Thank you
