Hi,
Did you all hear about the Bhikkhuni ordination in Australia and all the problems? And what do you think?

Greetings,

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

We already have a couple of topics open related to this issue, including..

Bhikkhuni Ordination performed - by Ajahn Brahmavamso
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2545

Bhikkuni's / Ajahn Brahm /Thai lineage?
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2847

Bhikkhuni Ordination - Photos
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2683

Brahm preceptor status revoked
viewtopic.php?f=14&t=2895

I'm sure you'll find a wealth of opinion in those topics.

In light of the existence of these topics, and in the interests of keeping related discussions together, we'll close this generic "what do you think?" topic.

Feel free to post and participate in the existing topics, or start a new one if there's a particular angle that isn't addressed by the existing topics.

Metta,
Retro. :)
Through corruption of the Dhamma comes corruption of the discipline, and from corruption of the discipline comes corruption of the Dhamma. This is the first future danger as yet unarisen that will arise in the future. You should recognize it and make an effort to prevent it. (AN 5.79)

"If you stand up and be counted, from time to time you may get yourself knocked down. But remember this: A man flattened by an opponent can get up again. A man flattened by conformity stays down for good." - Thomas J. Watson

Never again...
