|We always hear about the life of the Buddha, but very few of us know that his
wife Yasodhara was the first and only person in the entire Buddhist canon to
say “no” to the Buddha, and the Buddha accepted.
This evening presentation will include a reshaping of Yasodhara’s story as
well as the personal story of Ven. Dhammananda Bhikkhuni’s own journey to
become ordained, and her mother’s struggles to become the first ordained
nun in Thailand.|
