On Sunday, September 28, 2014, IBMC held a refuge and five-precepts ceremony for Samantha Kinkaid. She took the Buddhist name 'Chintamani' (Wish Fulfilling Jewel) as an Upāsikā.
The first two steps in the process of becoming a lay disciple of the Buddha are going for refuge and accepting the five precepts. IBMC offers the ceremony for Buddhist laypeople/householders at the discretion of a monk, nun or Dharma teacher.
