Shambhala Buddhist Upadhyaya Ordination

New upadhyayas

New upadhyayas

. On May 12, 2014, eight members of the Shambhala community were ordained as Buddhist chaplains at the Boulder Shambhala Center by Acharya Judith Simmer-Brown. The Upadhyaya (preceptor) ordination was given to Gary Allen, Beka Davis, Fay Elliott, Ellie Hollyday, Melanie Klein, Margot Neuman, Tracy Steele, and Sue Vess. This ordination ceremony, formally offered for only the second time, allows chaplains to apply for professional certification in several national chaplain organizations in the United States.

The individuals ordained are working within a variety of professional settings with the incarcerated, the mentally ill, the chronically and terminally ill, and with organizations that support these clients and their families. To read more about the ordination ceremony, please visit this site
