Excellent presentation about the history of Bhikkhunis

"I Will Not Pass Away Until... Reinstating the Buddha's Vision of the Four-fold Sangha" is about the history of Bhikkhunis (fully ordained Buddhist nuns) from the time of the Buddha until the present day. It uses the Aloka Vihara Forest Monastery nuns of Placerville, California, as an example of a group of pioneering women who are helping revive the lineage. The presentation is a colorful and informative overview of the history of the Buddha's vision of the four-fold sangha, and how women are an integral part of that vision. Because of political and cultural decisions, a strong female monastic presence disappeared for almost 1000 years. The revival of the bhikkhuni sangha began about 30 years ago and has spread throughout the world.
