Hybrid Hybrid Event
Four women in blue ordination robes

Everyone welcome to join us online for a celebratory evening to welcome back four dear friends as they return with new names after being Ordained in the Triratna Buddhist Order.

The new Order members and a small number of their friends and family will be in the Lotus Hall with the event leaders, and that’s as many as current Covid arrangements will allow, but there’s no limit to how many of us they can broadcast this lovely event to on Zoom!

Our New Dharmacharinis

Lynne Marie Eccleston becomes Taralocana, meaning She who sees with the eyes of Tara; Sundeep Grewal is now AryaraksitaShe who is protected by the noble ones; Helen Sullivan becomes SripaksiniShe who has shining, glorious wings (of Awakening) and Claire Morris is LilasuriPlayful Heroine. All these names are in the Sanskrit language.

We’ll find out something about our friends’ Ordination retreat experiences and enjoy connecting and rejoicing with the Manchester Buddhist Centre Sangha. Do join us in getting to know our new Order members a bit, or a bit more. No need to book, just turn up a few minutes before we start.

Supporting the Centre

Although we're now open four days a week, with some of our classes and events now back at the Centre, these are still difficult times for us. Through the pandemic we have lost much of our income: we need your help! So if you value our Centre and community, please think about making a regular or one-off donation here.
