IMI Senior Sangha Council

The IMI Senior Sangha Council is a group of senior IMI sangha members. It was formed as a result of an IMI community planning meeting in 2008, and was mandated to serve as the ethical body for the IMI sangha community. The objective of the Senior Sangha Council is to advise on ethical matters related to the IMI; the SSC is the council of the IMI concerning ethical issues of the IMI.
The council is responsible to:
•    Address the ethical standards when issues arise, and ensure the ethical integrity of the IMI community;
•    Maintain general community standards of monastic discipline; requests of advice could come from monasteries/ nunneries or of members who have no community.
