Sakyadhita: Daughters of the Buddha

Karma Lekshe Tsomo (Editor)
Synopsis Sakyadhita: Daughters of the Buddha is the result of the first International Conference of Buddhist nuns. At this gathering women Buddhist renunciates from east and west talked candidly about their lives -- their joys, their problems and their future as Buddhist nuns in the modern world. This book aims at linking and encouraging women on the spiritual path through the ideas and experience of Buddhist women practitioners from various countries and traditions. It investigates how women can avoid personal exploitation and maximize their potentialities for enlightenment, as well as how to effectively help institute full bhiksuni ordination worldwide and contribute to redressing the gender imbalance as a major step toward planetary well-being.
