Mitra ceremony in Western Ireland

June 3rd saw the three small Triratna Buddhist Sanghas in the West of Ireland coming together to celebrate their fifth mitra ceremony, welcoming Pat Youell from Westport into their number. The Ballina Hotel provided the venue, Sinhaketu - founder and principle teacher for all groups - was the celebrant, and Lokabandhu from the Triratna Development team, who happened to be visiting, managed to video the proceedings.

Pat joins approximately 10,000 Mitras around the world, including 2,000 in the UK and some 7,000 in India.  Triratna activities in the West of Ireland are held weekly at Belmullet, Ballina, and Westport.

Hi Sinhaketu - glad to hear of another mitra ceremony over in Ireland. Hope you managed to have as good a ceilidh afterwards as we did for the first mitra ceremonies in Belmullet.
