Let The Light Shine: Reflections from Theravada Bhikkhunis

Reminiscent of the ancient Indian Therigatha (Verses of the Women Elders) and the Chinese Biqiuni zhuan (Lives of the Bhikkhunis), this book gathers the reflections, insights and life stories of present-day bhikkhuni pioneers as the Buddha’s teaching and practice break new ground in new lands. Like the unique variety of characters in the ancient bhikkhuni texts, you will find here a treasure trove of knowledge, vision, and understanding gleaned from the heart of the practice—each reflection a doorway that shines light upon the path. May that light illuminate the brilliance of your heart. May the words contained herein be a blessing for your practice, a lamp and a guide, offering encouragement, solace, insight, and light.
