New Sāmaṇeras: Guṇavīro, Tissaro and Ṭhitasukho
May 17, 2017

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:

Pictures from Reception Hall - Season 4 - Construction
November 23, 2015

We are happy to announce that on Tuesday, March 14th, we called for an inspection of the Reception Hall building. The county inspector passed the building and gave us a temporary occupancy permit. This permit allows us to start using the building immediately. There are still a few days worth of cabinetry, tiling, and carpentry work, as well as the elevator to be approved.
