The Validity of bhikkhunī Ordination by bhikkhus Only, According to the Pāli Vinaya

Dear friends,
here is a article by ven. bhikkhu Anālayo. In this paper bhikkhu Anālayo argues that bhikkhunī ordination carried out by bhikkhus only, “single ordination”, is according to the Pāli Vinaya a legally valid procedure in a situation in which, due to the non-existence of a community of bhikkhunīs, the standard procedure of granting “dual ordination” by both communities is not possible.
Alongside the article, the venerable wrote an open, covering letter in response to the position on the alleged illegality of bhikkhunī ordination held by Ajahn Ṭhānissaro.
