Presidential Handover

Tuesday 25 February 7pm – 9pm

Nagabodhi will ritually hand on the presidency of the Wellington Buddhist Centre to Jnanadhara.

Nagabodhi has been the President of Wellington Buddhist Centre for 30 years. He is based in the UK and in this time, he has visited us for 2 weeks every two years, taking a friendly interest in our Centre and providing guidance and perspective to five different Chairs and the WBC Council. Many deep friendships have been formed during this time.

Jnanadhara is originally from Whangarei and first encountered Buddhism through books while in his mid-teens. After completing a diploma in music, he got involved with Triratna in Wellington in 1996. His desire to deepen his involvement led him to the UK.  From there he moved to Dublin, Ireland where he now lives. He was ordained in 2003.

After the ceremony we’ll hear from both Nagabodhi and Jnanadhara.
