Honoring Our Ancestors: The Trailblazing Buddhist Nuns of China

with Kathy Lin

May 18, 2022

How did women in ancient China, where Confucian orthodoxies of filial piety and family were the structuring units of society, come to take up the Buddhist monastic practice of “homeleaving” to follow a spiritual imperative?

Join scholar Kathy Lin for this introduction to the biographies early Buddhist nuns who were able to chart a path into a vital and visionary Buddhist spiritual life in 4th-6th China, with plenty of time for questions and discussion.

Our online programs are offered by donation so that everyone can participate. We appreciate your support.
