Respecting the Variety of Buddhist Traditions

Following the journey of a possible future Bhikkhuni(female monastic)

I wanted to share the video log of a friend of mine whom I met a few months ago. She resides over in Australia and is on the path towards becoming a Bhikkhuni. I’m happy that she is doing a video log of her journey as I believe it will be of great benefit for women who wish to follow the same path, as well as men.

The fourfold assembly is fourfold for a reason, and the growth of the Bhikkhuni order is of great benefit to the growth and survival of the Dhamma world wide.

So check out her videos and see a different perspective on the Dhamma, from a woman I greatly admire and wish well.
