Ordination Program

Ordination

In the Theravada Buddhist tradition, every male ordains as a monk at least once in his life. The Seattle Meditation Center provides this opportunity to males age 12 to 60. During summer, we offer a two- or three-week ordination program for novices and monks. Please register by email, seattle072@gmail.com, or phone,  (425) 608-0096.
