Jukai Precepts Ceremony for Seven Bodhisattvas

On Saturday, January 9, auspiciously early in the year, seven bodhisattvas received the precepts and donned “Buddha’s Robe”, six of them for the first time and one for the second time.

Victoria Austin and Jordan Thorn were the preceptors: Vicki’s students are Wakoh Shannon Hickey (Wakoh is a priest who was ordained many years ago and took part in this ceremony to renew her vows and acknowledge Vicki as her teacher), Lois Imbrogno, Susana Millman, Walker Dieboldt, Sandy Lamerson, and Dagmar Bernhardt, and Jordan’s student is Thaddeus Cambron. Deep bows of appreciation and congratulation to everyone, preceptors and students.
