Proposed Bhikkhuni Publications Series
The vision is for a series of high quality, free distribution, publications about Bhikkhunis and women in Buddhism to support the revival of the Theravadan Bhikkhuni Sangha, and to inspire and bring joy to people everywhere.
We hope to do this by: bringing stories and examples of wise, inspiring, compassionate and courageous buddhist women into everyday awareness; making the early history and contemporary landscape of women in buddhism common knowledge; and to nurture a deep sense of connection and 'at-homeness' for women within the textual traditions and historical unfolding of Buddhism. We would also like draw inspiration from the Bhikkhuni Vinaya, both for women who have a monastic calling, and for those who would like to deepen their understanding of the nature of this training.
We hope that by becoming more aware of the past precedents for the lives of women within the Theravada Buddhism, women (and men) will be able to more clearly identify the value and relevance of what the Buddha taught, in their own lives, right now.
The Proposed List of Publications:
