Taipei: Bhikshunis in the West

November 23 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm CST

Venerable Thubten Chodron

The Past and Future of the Bhikshuni Sangha in the West

Public talk with Ven. Thubten Chodron

 

Venerable Thubten Chodron is one of the first generation of Americans to study the Dharma in Asia and ordain as a Buddhist nun. With over 40 years of ordination, she speaks about bhikshunis in the West —how the lineage is transmitted and how it is practiced by Western nuns.

As the founder of Sravasti Abbey, the first training monastery for Westerners in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition in the US, Ven. Chodron offers first-hand experience and insights on the challenges and opportunities of establishing and developing a fully ordained sangha in the West.
