Welcome back, Abhayamani!
Mon 1st Jul : 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Acharashraddha leads a celebratory evening to welcome back Abhayamani, our newest Order member, or Dharmacharini. She used to be Lynda and her new name is a Sanskrit one meaning She who is or has the jewel of fearlessness. Abhayamani was ordained publicly by Parami on an Ordination retreat at Adhisthana, with Kamalagita as her private preceptor. Our old friends Denise Carlyle and Tracey Smith were ordained at the same ceremony, becoming Advayagita and Satyanadi.
Tonight we’ll hear more about Abhayamani’s Ordination retreat, about Ordination itself, and maybe the subtleties of the meaning of her new name. All welcome at this lovely evening. No need to book, just turn up a few minutes before we start.
