During the Spring Ordination Training weekend held at Padmaloka earlier this month, Maitreyabandhu gave the keynote talk.
In that talk he spoke about what it means to become ordained, to train for ordination and to prepare for a life in the order. The talk was also given in the context of ritually sending off 11 of the 16 men who will soon be ordained at Guhyaloka.
