Marking this, the BBC radio programme Woman’s Hour this week featured an interview with the Dalit campaigner Ruth Manorama, who won a human rights award last month for her work with Dalit people, especially women...

Why ordination? Why an Order?

Posted by vajratara to Tiratanaloka on Tue, 11 Feb, 2014 - 14:08
Last weekend Tiratanaloka hosted a weekend for women mitras exploring why we have an Order and what ordination into the Triratna Buddhist Order involves. Listen to Maitreyi’s talk from the weekend - great for those thinking of asking for Ordination, those who are training for Ordination and those who want to ponder the significance of being Ordained!

We started the holiday with a trip to the Netherlands for a week of friendship and culture … it was the annual ‘International Documentary Festival’ and having been starved of culture for a while, it was just the treat we needed. That together with seeing good friends was very nourishing.

From there we went to UK, firstly to Tiratanaloka to meet with the ‘envisioners’ and do...
