Via the wonders of facebook, I’ve just come across a great journal based in California and supporting Theravada women across the globe. The current issue’s offerings include:
1…Listening at the End of Life: An Interview with Tenzin Kiyosaki
A Tibetan Buddhist nun for twenty-seven years, Tenzin Kiyosaki (formerly Venerable Tenzin Kacho) brings her practice to the bedside working as a chaplain to those facing death.
by Sarah Conover
This substantive scriptural study looks into the guiding and determining mental and emotional states of liberated arahant women as expressed in the sacred biographies of the Therī Apadāna.
by Ayya Tathaaloka Bhikkhuni
25…What Buddhism Gave Me
A new bhikkhuni recounts her annual childhood visits to the Buddhist temple with her Thai mother and the depression of her young adulthood that drew her back to the Dhamma, and eventually to ordination.
by Munissara Bhikkhuni
And from their about page:
