In the Beginning

  • The Trust is inspired by the venerable Ayya Medhanandi Bhikkhunī’s five-year visit to New Zealand, the appearance of our first Kiwi Theravada bhikkhunī in the world — Adhimutti Bhikkhunī — and the recent visit of Ayya Tathaaloka Bhikkhunī together with her student Ayya Adhi to the Land of the Long White Cloud.

We wish to support the presence of bhikkhunīs living, practicing and teaching in the Theravada tradition, as well as those training to become bhikkhunīs — for their deeper practice and study and for sharing their teachings and leading retreats — as an essential and beautiful part of the fullness of the Buddha’s Fourfold Assembly.

May you be well & happy, peaceful & at ease.

May your heart grow in wisdom & enlightenment.

May you be well.
