April 6,2008 We celebrated the inauguration of the new Vihara for the Medicine Buddha and also the centenary of Ven.Bhikkhuni Voramai Kabilsingh as reported on the front page. There were nine bhikkhunis and samaneris chanting the Maha Samaya Sutta together in a very powerful manner. The whole event was recorded on CD if you are interested please get in touch with our office.
In this issue we have a short report from Ven.Sudhira on the bhikkhuni conference in Australia. In May Ven.Sujato will also be addressing a large gathering in Indonesia on bhikkhuni issue, we will try to report the event. In this issue we are grateful to have a full article which he kindly wrote to clarify many "If and buts" on the bhikkhuni subject.
We are moving in the right direction and with the right energy, may the Buddhas bless all who are sincerely working to establish the fourfold Buddhists.
With metta, Dhammananda bhikkhuni
