During the course of the public ordination ceremony into the Triratna Buddhist Order, the public preceptor anoints the person being ordained with water from a special vase - the vase of initiation. This vase can be said to symbolise the entire meaning of going for refuge and ordination. In the course of this weekend for men training for ordination, Padmavajra will explore in detail the symbolism of the vase of initiation and it's meaning for all of us.

As well as Padmavajra's talks, an interview with Aloka, our weekend will include discussion groups led by ordination team members, meditations and pujas. It promises to be a rich and inspiring weekend.
