Ordination Day – Summer Festival 2015

The Temple was filled with a sea of yellow as ordained Sangha from all over the world came to attend the 2015 ordination ceremony. Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang granted ordination to 21 Kadampas from Australia, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Mexico, New Zealand, Spain, UK, and US. The smiles were irrepressible from the group who delighted in the start of their new life. Everyone rejoiced in the appearance of our new Sangha and in their own opportunity to receive teachings and renew their ordination vows. Outside friends and family were waiting to greet the newly arisen monks and nuns and find out their new names.
