We are delighted that Maitrimati has become the new women’s Mitra Convenor. Maitrimati succeeds Maitrisara, who has become Chair of our Buddhist Centre.
Maitrimati was ordained in 2018 while living and working at Taraloka Retreat Centre. Before that, as many of you will remember, she was Centre Manager at the Birmingham Buddhist Centre, so she already has some long-standing friends here.
The appointment was made, as is usual in Triratna, by the local Dharmacharinis. And, as she will be working at the Buddhist Centre, the appointment also needed the support of the charity’s trustees.
