Men's Order Nissaya retreat
For men ordained within the last five years
The Nissaya period is the first five years of your Order life. At ordination, we take up new practises, a new name, and new responsibilities. These new responsibilities are contained in the four verses of acceptance that people recite at their private and public ordinations:
With loyalty to my teachers, I accept this ordination.
In harmony with friends and bretheren, I accept this ordination.
For the attainment of Enlightenment, I accept this ordination.
For the benefit of all beings, I accept this ordination.
During these nissaya period retreats, we gather together as order members to explore topics which help us deepen our practise as order members and our collective experience of the Order. This year we will be focusing on sadhana and chapter.
