Had my Upasampadā today, I am now Bhikkhu Jayasāra. It's been a long road since about 2010, but i've come to the end... and yet just the beginning.

Thank you for all the kind words friends and good to see you online Bhante Lucky. I did receive your letter in the mail only two days before my ordination so it worked out perfectly.

Hi Bhante,

Yes, that can be done. Let me know what you'd like it to be either here or in PM.
