Equal Opportunity | Ajahn Hasapanna | 19 April 2019

April 22, 2019

Many years ago, Venerable Hasapanna wanted to ordain as a nun in the Theravada tradition but the opportunity wasn't available. Fortunately Venerable Hasapanna is now reaching her 10th year as a fully ordained Theravadin Nun (Bhikkhuni). Full Theravadin Bhikkhuni ordination was arranged by Ajahn Brahmavamso 10 years ago to allow for equality. Venerable Hasapanna advocates equality and equity not just for women in Buddhism, but for many aspects of people's lives. Lastly Venerable also discusses how to deal with our perceptions of unfairness.
