After many years of training and dedication, our friend Nichola has been invited to join the Triratna Buddhist Order. She is setting off for her ordination retreat soon, returning with a new name symbolising her spiritual rebirth.

Order members make their commitment to Going for Refuge to the Three Jewels of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha the central point of their lives. At Ordination, they also undertake to practise a traditional set of ten ethical precepts, in both private and public ceremonies – More about Ordination and Order Members

Everyone Welcome Online

Broadcasting online, Jayadevi will lead us in wishing Nichola well from across the city and beyond, as she embarks on this key stage of her spiritual journey. Ordination send-offs are always lovely celebrations so do join us online even if you don’t know Nichola very well, or even at all.

We’ll hear a bit about Nichola and about Ordination, from Nichola herself and from people who know her well. There will be some Buddhist ritual and meditation which we can join in from home or just watch if this is unfamiliar.
