Early Buddhist Women
June 5, 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Teacher: Lama Chimey (Lois Beran)
The names and accomplishments of women in early Buddhism (during the time of Buddha Shakyamuni) have been largely ignored, erased, or denigrated. This class will introduce us to some of these women. We will use the Therigatha, songs of accomplishment and realization authored by these women, as one of our sources.
