Woman volunteer cleaning

Today our dear friend Cia Vinten joins the Triratna Buddhist Order in a public ceremony, after being privately ordained at her Ordination retreat at Adhisthana. This rare opportunity to witness the public ordination of a well-loved Sangha member at our Centre is an important event for us. Let’s celebrate Cia in large numbers, and be the first to learn her new name!

About Ordination and Order Members

Arrive from 1.30 pm to settle in and have a brew, then it’s a prompt 2 pm start in the shrine room. The Ordination will take an hour, followed by tea and cake together. If Buddhist ritual is unfamiliar to you, it's fine to just watch.

Health Issues

If there are any health issues, physical, emotional or mental, that could affect your participation in a course or event, please contact the Buddhist Centre at info@manchesterbuddhistcentre.org.uk, and ask to talk confidentially to one of our Order members, before deciding whether to attend.
