I know I haven’t been participating much recently, but I wonder if you can help me with an enquiry. I’m aware that some (most?) Thai Forest lineages exclude nuns from full ordination, and that Ajahn Brahm was famously excommunicated for performing such ordinations.
Does anybody know if this discrimination is present in Ajahn Chah’s lineage, and in particular the Amaravati sangha (which is its branch in Britain)?
With thanks for any knowledge you can offer,
