Discussion of ordination, the Vinaya and monastic life. How and where to ordain? Bhikkhuni ordination etc.
is an article from 2011; apparently they do not have legal recognition, so perhaps the jailed issue relates to this?
I like to quote this:
"“I love that it is easy to touch and talk with Dhammananda,” said Khun Tip, a layperson who visits the monastery daily. “Women who have problems with their husbands or families cannot talk to male monks about these things.”
Something that is often forgotten... I hope there will be fully accepted bhikkhunis asap all over the world. Not to optimistic though.
Get the wanting out of waiting
Let none find fault with others; let none see the omissions and commissions of others.
But let one see one's own acts, done and undone. (Dhammapada, 50)
