There is a growing army of female Buddhist practitioners. From the age-old but often marginalised Mae Chi to establishment-defying revival of Bhikkhuni ordination, more and more women are asserting their rightful place in the Theravada tradition of Buddhism. In between these two are initiatives to recruit and train women under specific regiments and with different labels. The Dharma-mata group at Suan Mokkh forest monastery in Chaiya is one such example. In England, the two branches of Wat Nong Pah Pong, at Amaravati and Chit-hurst (also called Cittaviveka), have set up the Order of Siladhara, which has been growing slowly but steadily over the last two decades.

Lent arrives by Moh Moh Thaw, The Myanamr Times, 23 July 2006
“JULY and August, rain and flood,” goes an old Myanmar saying, but July also brings the start of the three-month Buddhist Lent period. True to the Myanmar character, the Lenten season – even though it is associated with self-denial, quiet contem-plation and meritorious deeds – begins with music and festivities.
