We are very fortunate to be able to host another visit by Venerable Sudhamma on Friday, 29th August, on the topic of “Women in Buddhism”. As senior nun of the Sri Subodha Sangamitta Dhamma Education Institution, a leading women’s seminary in Sri Lanka. We look forward to the opportunity to share in some of her wisdom. Her website can be found here: http://dhamma-stream.blogspot.com.au/p/sri.html
Her talk will include an introduction to eminent female disciples of the Buddha, and an explanation of the Buddha’s vision for the spiritual development of women in different roles: as lay householders, and as renunciants. There will be an opportunity to ask questions.
Please come a little early to allow us to begin promptly at 3:30pm.
