On May 6, 2017, three ordinations took place at Abhayagiri. Former anagārikas Jeff, Dorian, and Hector went forth as sāmaṇeras Guṇavīro, Tissaro, Ṭhitasukho, with Luang Por Pasanno as their preceptor.
In the tradition, taking ordination as a sāmaṇera is a way of further devoting oneself to the training in preparation for full Bhikkhu ordination.
In case you missed it, a video of the ordination was recorded and is available for viewing:
We also have photos from the event that are available in our gallery:
