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.

Great photos! I'll show them to Ajahn Sangharatana, who also ordained with Bhante G.
Congratulations!
Then,
saturated with joy,
you will put an end to suffering and stress.

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.

a short video when asked my final thoughts before ordination -

Hi Bhante,

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

What just might be one of the last posts I make in this thread. If your interested in watching what a higher ordination is like. The actual ceremony in Pali is about 25 minutes, but then Bhante G repeats the WHOLE ceremony again in English for everyone to understand.
