Sadhu!Sadhu!Sadhu!
Bhikkhus, if you develop and make much this one thing,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.
What is it? It is recollecting the Enlightened One.
If this single thing is recollected and made much,
it invariably leads to weariness, cessation, appeasement, realization and extinction.

The new monk looks very young.

It's kind of nice to see Ajahn Chandapalo now taking on the position of upajaya. He was ordained at Chithurst so he may well be the first European ordained monk performing ordinations in Europe.

Beautiful ceremony :anjali:
