Dual sangha ordination

The method for conferring full nun (Skt. bhikṣuṇī) vows involving groups (Skt. saṃgha) of both fully ordained monks and fully ordained nuns. The bhikshuni sangha first asks the questions regarding the candidate’s suitability to become a bhikshuni. Later that same day, the bhikshuni sangha joins with the bhikshu sangha to form a joint assembly. The bhikshu sangha gives the ordination, while the bhikshuni sangha serves as witnesses.
