- Theravada Bhikkhuni Sangha - Past, Present, and Future
"According to the Buddha’s teaching, our best chance for enlightenment is not in a heavenly realm, but here in midst of elements and aggregates, within these bodies which age and sicken, among the earth, rain, wind, fire and consciousness elements. We wake up here, not in another ideal place. This is the ideal place."
— Ayya Tathaloka, Founding Teacher
