The Triratna Buddhist Order, from its inception, has held as one of its core principles an identical ordination for both men and women - something unique among Buddhist traditions. On day 11 of our 12 Days of FBA event we celebrate the women of our community with two talks from the series “Women Elders of the Triratna Buddhist Community”.

Dhammadinna and Mallika - ordained in 1973 and 1974 respectively - talk about the journey their spiritual lives have taken from those early days of the then FWBO to their current practice and place in the Triratna Buddhist Order.

These two talks are only a fraction of the full series, which can be found in its entirety here for continued listening and includes talks from twelve women who have been with the Order for many years:

A reminder that tomorrow is the last day of our 12 Days of FBA fundraiser! For those of you who have already pledged your support and donations to us, we thank you over and over again.

If you have not already given we ask that you please make your donation today! There is much to do in the New Year which will require your help.

We have only begun to move towards our goal this year of £50,000, so if you’ve been holding off thinking that someone out there will donate for you or that we must be covered already, please consider that it’s your personal commitment to this important resource that will make all the difference - every donation matters! Thank you!
