We're setting up a bhikkhuni monastery! Mettarama Nuns' Monastery Vision Day, Sat Aug 21, 2021

I have some very exciting news to share about our monastery, Mettarama in Sydney. mettarama.org. :grinning:

Bhante @sujato , myself and Tina Ng and team of the Metta Centre/Mettarama working group have been cooking this up for some time now…now it’s official! We’re developing an urban bhikkhuni monastery in Sydney & we’re getting together on Zoom, Saturday August 21st 9:00am-10:30am, to talk about it (Bhante Sujato and myself will be presenting, too).

We would love for you to join us for this historical event…now is the time to bring all your ideas and questions about this project as we work toward a long-term vision. But please remember to REGISTER via the link, as Metta Centre events can attract a crowd.

We invite you to be a part of this monastery and a movement to support the full participation of Buddhist nuns in practicing and sharing the Buddha’s teachings. Through this Mettarama Vision Day, we are inviting all sections of our community, monastic and lay, to bring your ideas and energy to discuss about our collective mission and plan for Mettārāma. All are welcome to participate: Let’s work for the Buddha’s mission together!

Felicitations Ayya! Nice to see another Saṇgha Ārāma popping up in Auz, all the more mudita as it is for the newly budding Bhikkuni Saṇgha, may your efforts and the community there meet with much success and may the Sangha abide in comfort for many generations to come, puññā kiriyesu paṇḍitā peyyavācā dānañca sammacariyañca metta cittañca bhavaye
