This is a youtube video of supposedly the youngest mae chee to ordain in Thailand. According to my Thai friend, this girl is 5 years old and after hearing about Vishaka's story, she pestered her parents to let her ordain for a day. That one day ended being 2 weeks!! She disrobed reluctantly as she had to start school. The little mae chee ordained in Mae Chee Sasanee's temple and she will re-ordain as a mae chee during her school break in April. Her story has inspired a new program to ordain little mae chees in Thailand.
Although they are only mae chees and not novices or nuns, this (ordination program in April) is a marked progress in Thailand. Many already know the status that mae chees have in Thailand. Hopefully, this will help females in Thailand gain better access to the Dhamma training that is readily available for the males.
