Short Term Ordination
Period from 14th – 25th May 2011
May 2011 in conjunction with Vesak day, Samnak will be organizing a temporal ordination and observation of eight precepts (both male and female adult)

You may either do the observation of eight precepts or go for temporal ordination as a monk or nun at your wish. For those who wish to go through temporal ordination, advanced notification is greatly appreciated as robes and other requisites need to be arranged.

Going through Temporal Ordination / Observation of Eight Precepts
Going through temporal ordination / Observation of eight precepts is seen as virtuous. It is seen as a means for us to “repay” our parents for their work and effort in raising us, because the merit from our ordination will accumulate and attributed to them as well. You may choose to stay 3 to 9 days. The shaving of hair is optional for people observing the Eight Precepts

Notifying parents of intention to pursue desired path
Please not that before going to Samnak to do the desired precepts, please be notified that permission from parents must be sought. Should your parents have passed on, simply hold up the joss stick, face the east and inform your parents of your intention to pursue this desired.

Accommodation, food and attire will be provided for. If you have any finance difficulties, do not worry, arrangement can be done.
The only request from Khun mere is your sincerity in your practice and aspirations.
