It is an honor and joy to introduce this first book of Theravàda bhikkhuni reflections in the English language. Reminiscent of the ancient Indian Therigàthà (Verses of the Women Elders) and the Chinese Biqiuni zhuan 比丘尼传 (Lives of the Bhikkhunis), the path reflections and life stories gathered here reveal insights of bhikkhuni pioneers of the present as the Buddha’s teaching and practice break new ground in new lands.
