Dhammananda Bhikkhuni
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.
