About the Event

In 1997, Ayya Tathaloka had the opportunity - incredibly rare at that time - to receive full higher ordination as a Theravada Bhikkhuni. This year is the 25th anniversary of that auspicious event. The Dhammadharini community is planning an event to celebrate Ayya Tathaloka's 25 years as a Bhikkhuni, the incredible benefit she has brought to all those who have been inspired by her life, teachings, and practice, and her work to make Bhikkhuni ordination available to others. 

Please join us on Saturday, December 3rd, for an in-person event at Dhammadharini monastery for the meal and in the early afternoon, and then an online event in the evening. We also welcome all of our friends to submit a recorded video message of appreciation, congratulations, or reminiscence - please register to receive more details.
