Abbey welcomes Ven. Pende to monastic community

Print Article

As is the tradition at Sravasti Abbey, members do a puja every Chinese New Year in honor of their Chinese supporters in Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States, as well as for all supporters whose kindness enables the Abbey to exist.

Abbey members dedicate the merit for long life, good health, successful Dharma practice, good relationships, and freedom from hindrances.

The abbey’s monastic community also held the puja as the occasion for the former Ven. Tien to become Ven. Thubten Pende. In a short rite, she was given Tibetan robes as well as her new Tibetan name as she was welcomed as part of the Sravasti Abbey monastic community. Ven. Pende received sramanera and siksamana ordination last June from a Vietnamese sangha.
