Last Sunday, 3rd June, a young Italian novice - samanera Jayaviro - was inducted into the bhikkhu sangha at Santacittarama monastery. This took place in the large tent, where a sima boundary was formally established about 5 years ago. When the temple project will be finally completed, possibly next year, this sima will be removed and a new one established around the temple. In the meantime the large meeting hall on the top floor of the temple is almost finished, and has been used occasionally, for a public Vesak celebration and recently for evening puja.
