We have now created a new sub-forum, dedicated to the topic of Ordination!Ordination sub-forumviewforum.php?f=30
This sub-forum provides an opportunity for those considering entering the homeless life to ask questions about ordination, travel arrangements, contacting monasteries and the monastic life in general. It's also a place to discuss other issues relating to ordination such as Vinaya requirements, the issue of bhikkhuni ordination and so on.
I've moved some topics into the new forum but have been mindful to leave some topics in their original locations if there was some possible need for them to remain in their original locations (e.g. Dhammic Free-For-All, Classical Theravada, Personal Experience). If you wish for a topic you have created to be moved into the Ordination forum, please let me know via PM. Also, if you created a topic which has been moved into the Ordination forum, but you would like to see it moved elsewhere, please let me know that too.
Any comments, questions or concerns?
"Having understood name-and-form, which is a product of prolificity,
And which is the root of all malady within and without,
He is released from bondage to the root of all maladies,
That Such-like-one is truly known as 'the one who has understood'." (Snp 3.6)
"Whether I were to preach in brief, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach in detail, Sāriputta, or whether I were to preach both in brief or in detail, Sāriputta, rare are those who understand." (A I 333, Sāriputtasutta)
