January at Adhisthana

It has been a lovely start to the year already. The European Chairs Assembly came for their winter meeting, and it was a great way to kick off 2024; their clear up left the place spotless and you can usually find Maitridevi and a few others playing Bananagrams after dinner (and learn some new words; atavist and quinquereme anyone?).

In community news, Caroline will be going to Akasavana this year and will be ordained by Aryajaya – we look forward to...

Dear friends,

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

Registered spelling Shurangamamati. 

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

With Metta,

Ratnavyuha

This brings our new total to over one million pounds, which means we’re...
