“There is something about the movement, the Order, and even about me that is not easily definable. There is a touch of something that cannot be buttoned down, something that cannot in the end be defined. Everyone will need to take care of that rather mysterious, indefinable spirit that gives the movement life and energy.” Sangharakshita, ‘What is the Western Buddhist Order?’
An essential part of ordination, the post-ordination retreat allows us to come together with our ordination companions to share our lives as new Order Members and touch back into the magic of the ordination retreat. By invitation only - for those ordained at Akashavana on the 3-month ordination retreat 2023.
