    PASSIONATE ENLIGHTENMENT: Women in Tantric Buddhism PASSIONATE ENLIGHTENMENT: Women in Tantric Buddhism
    by Miranda Shaw

    Tantric Buddhism is known in the West primarily for its sexual practices which transform erotic passion into spiritual ecstasy. Historians of religion have held that the enlightenment thus attempted was for men only, and that women in the movement were subordinate and at worst degraded and exploited. Miranda Shaw presents extensive new evidence of outspoken and independent female founders of the Tantric movement and their creative role in shaping sacred sexuality. In her view, the Tantric theory has promoted cooperative, mutually liberative relationships that rely on women as a source of spiritual insight and power.

  • BEING A BUDDHIST NUN: THE STRUGGLE FOR ENLIGHTENMENT IN THE HIMALAYAS BEING A BUDDHIST NUN: THE STRUGGLE FOR ENLIGHTENMENT IN THE HIMALAYAS
    by Kim Gutschov

    They may shave their heads, don simple robes, and renounce materialism and worldly desires. But the women seeking enlightenment in a Buddhist nunnery high in the folds of Himalayan Kashmir invariably find themselves subject to the tyrannies of subsistence, subordination, and sexuality. Ultimately, Buddhist monasticism reflects the very world it is supposed to renounce. Butter and barley prove to be as critical to monastic life as merit and meditation. Kim Gutschow lived for more than three years among these women, collecting their stories, observing their ways, studying their lives. Her book offers the first ethnography of Tibetan Buddhist society from the perspective of its nuns.

  • BEING BODIES: Buddhist Women on the Paradox BEING BODIES: Buddhist Women on the Paradox
    by Leonore Friedman, ed.

    The relationship between body and mind has always been a topic of speculation, and spirited discussion. The authors of the pieces contained in this anthology address be problem from the unique dual perspective of being women and being students of Buddhism. 'We spend our lives in bodies, and if we realize anything: we care to call 'enlightenment, it's in our bodies; ln this book we wanted to address a tendency we've both observed for spiritual seekers to leave be body behind.

  • BLOSSOMS OF THE DHARMA: Living as a Buddhist Nun BLOSSOMS OF THE DHARMA: Living as a Buddhist Nun
    by Thubten Chodron

    In recent years Buddhist nuns from Asia and the West have met together to become more active in improving their status in the female sangha. At " Life As a Buddhist Nun," the 1996 conference in Dharamsala, His Holiness the Dalai Lama supported this effort of Buddhist nuns to clarify their purpose in taking vows, widening their context, broadening community beyond their own abbeys, and supporting one another on their quest to to achieve greater equality with men in liturgical matters, especially ordination. They received concentrated teachings on the bhikshuni precepts, discussed their lives and Dharma practice, and compared traditions and precepts in different lineages.

  • BUDDHISM THROUGH AMERICAN WOMEN'S EYES BUDDHISM THROUGH AMERICAN WOMEN'S EYES
    by Karma Lekshe Tsomo

    The Buddha's path to human transformation declares women and men equally capable of spiritual realization, yet throughout history most exemplars of this tradition have been men. Now, as Buddhism is transmitted to North America, women are playing a major role in its adaption and development. The conversation presented here takes place among practioners from the Theravada, Japanese Zen, Shingon, Chinese Pure Land, and Tibetan traditions, who share their thoughts on Buddhist philosophy, its practical application in everyday life, and the challenges of practicing Buddhism in the Western world.
