Very nice mass Ordination.

I take Refuge in the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, and study the Dharma, and Pali texts.

I live far away in Alaska which is very snowy and icy.

I would love to be Ordained in a Sri Lankan sangha...if that is possible at long long distance??

It is not easy to get a buddhist ordination, especially here in the snowy land of Alaska.
I abide by the Panca Sila.
Take my refuges in Buddha Dhamma and Sangha. I read the Pali texts (Bikkhu Bodhi) and have read Buddhism for many years.
I would love a Buddhist ordination in this auspicious year..May all beings be well and happy..I have my own shrine-room for meditation and pujas..I am in my fifties.

Nice to see that almost all of them look above 18 years - this means, they are likely to have chosen this life on their own rather than enter such a life to satisfy their parents (at a younger age....)
