Shared interest network
Women and Buddhism
We collect experiences of women, preserve them and pass them on to as many people as possible, so that they can also draw inspiration and courage to find their way.
Since the time of the Buddha, women have been deeply inspired by and gained strength in Buddhist practice. Although the full ordination of women was introduced by the Buddha himself, it unfortunately has not been accepted everywhere. In their development towards full enlightenment, women have often passed on their experiences by unconventional means.
Many correspondents of this website are active members of the Sakyadhita International Association of Buddhist Women. In addition, all those who are interested in "Women and Buddhism" are invited to join and help us with this important task.
