Female Monastics in Thailand Barred From Paying Respects to Late King




Female monks barred from paying respects

"Whatever challenges lie ahead, we will still practise as bhikkhuni. Whatever resistance from the establishment, more women will choose to pursue a spiritual path as female monastics," said Ven Dhammananda

"Nothing can stop it."

Unfortunately there are many places in the world where it is not easy for women to lead the monastic life!

I'd like to share this article in this thread: https://www.samita.eu/en/2017/01/27/bhi ... -politics/
And here you can read Saccavadi's story in her own words: https://sujato.wordpress.com/2010/02/16 ... dis-story/

I am quite new on this forum and found this thread on Bhikkhuni ordination, going back already for many years. I didn't read all the posts (a few thousand, I guess), but just some at the beginning and some at the end. So I am not sure if the provided information is already known to the community. My apologies if it is nothing new.
