The Buddha's path to human transformation implies that women and men are equally capable of spiritual realization, yet throughout history most exemplars of this tradition have been men. Now, as Buddhism is transmitted to the West, women are playing a major role in its adaptation and development. In this anthology, 13 women contribute essays on such topics as bringing Dharma into relationships, dealing with stress, Buddhism and the 12 Steps, mothering and meditation, the monastic experience, and forging a kind heart in an age of alienation.
