A revealing, honest and personal discussion about Bhikkhuni ordination and some of the joys and challenges of monastic life as a woman. The session begins with a 30 min talk by Ajahn Brahm & Venerable Canda, who disclose some of their personal experiences ordaining women (Ajahn) and being ordained (Venerable). Next they answer questions from the organisers and attendants, including reasons for ordaining (or not!) the Buddha’s views on women and the gender of Buddhas. I hope this gives much food for thought!
