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

Welcome to Dhamma Wheel.

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

Bhikkhuni Ordination performed - by Ajahn Brahmavamso

Bhikkuni's / Ajahn Brahm /Thai lineage?

Bhikkhuni Ordination - Photos

Brahm preceptor status revoked

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.

Retro. :)
