New Ordination sub-forum

Postby retrofuturist » Wed Jan 27, 2010 3:51 am

Greetings,

We have now created a new sub-forum, dedicated to the topic of Ordination!

Ordination sub-forum
viewforum.php?f=30

This sub-forum provides an opportunity for those considering entering the homeless life to ask questions about ordination, travel arrangements, contacting monasteries and the monastic life in general. It's also a place to discuss other issues relating to ordination such as Vinaya requirements, the issue of bhikkhuni ordination and so on.

I've moved some topics into the new forum but have been mindful to leave some topics in their original locations if there was some possible need for them to remain in their original locations (e.g. Dhammic Free-For-All, Classical Theravada, Personal Experience). If you wish for a topic you have created to be moved into the Ordination forum, please let me know via PM. Also, if you created a topic which has been moved into the Ordination forum, but you would like to see it moved elsewhere, please let me know that too.

Any comments, questions or concerns?

Metta,
Retro. :)

Thank you. It was Ben's idea actually, I just tweaked the technical side of things.

I hope you're well.
