I don't think the actions of a small group of Bhikkhu's are indicative of the majority of Thai Bhikkhus, let alone Thai Buddhism, let alone Thai people. There are many elements that make up a whole, to see a very small part of the whole picture and claim it as the whole, is a very sloppy, and hurtful assumption. Not only does it hurt you, it hurts others.

I hope this is a cause for some introspection, my good friend.

Not all women who decide to become Buddhist nuns want to be bhikkhunis.
Here is a video with Sister (Saylay) Visuddhi from Malaysia interviewed by Bhante Anandajoti at Vivekavana in January 2010. She talks about life as a 10 precept nun and the challenges of it:

And here is a recent reflection on the cultural differences between England and Thailand regarding this status of women by Ajahn Sucitto:

Then the Blessed One, picking up a tiny bit of dust with the tip of his fingernail, said to the monk, "There isn't even this much form...feeling...
perception...fabrications...consciousness that is constant, lasting, eternal, not subject to change, that will stay just as it is as long as eternity."

I saw this news recently. How wonderful! I'd love to be in the company of these great bhikkhuni's for even a week of practice. Hopefully their community will continue to grow and flourish. :anjali:

now Srilanka have 3.000 dasasilamatas (nun who take 10 precepts), and have 500 more bhikkhunis and samaneris.
i think this is good for who love to get ordination can come to Srilanka.

Most of this discussion presents a picture of some Buddhist version of the highly intense politics in the Catholic church, where scripture can be used to justify self-assertion and vindictiveness. Almost no one seems concerned for the well-being and future of the women involved or other women who might be involved more deeply with Buddhism. "We have our laws, we have our procedures, we have our traditions." What rubbish if they are all used to grind down women not to help them. Compassion has vanished.

Greetings,

Dennis Sheppard, President of BSWA, referred to fallout from the Bhikkhuni ordination in his report to the Annual General Meeting on 12th March 2011. A short video, with text, is available on YouTube... http://www.youtube.com/user/BuddhistSoc ... RAGjvj4xJA

I know that this message is a bit like printing "this page intentionally left blank" on the blank side of a piece of paper, but I'd like to say that I have made a decision to speak skillfully and use my time efficiently for what is important by not posting this thread. No disrespect meant to anyone.
In reading the scriptures, there are two kinds of mistakes:
One mistake is to cling to the literal text and miss the inner principles.
The second mistake is to recognize the principles but not apply them to your own mind, so that you waste time and just make them into causes of entanglement.

Four types of letting go:

1) Giving; expecting nothing back in return
2) Throwing things away
3) Contentment; wanting to be here, not wanting to be anywhere else
4) "Teflon Mind"; having a mind which doesn't accumulate things

- Ajahn Brahm
