- This week we feature a pre-recorded conversation with Wendy Garling and Ayya Tathaaloka.
Wendy Garling is the author of the recently published book Stars at Dawn: Forgotten Stories of Women in the Buddhas’s Life, a retelling of the ancient legends of the women in the Buddha’s intimate circle. In Garling’s book, lesser-known stories from Sanskrit and Pali sources are for the first time woven into an illuminating, coherent narrative. The narrative is interspersed with original insights, fresh interpretations, and bold challenges to the status quo.
Ayya Tathaaloka Bhikkhuni is an American-born Theravada nun, scholar and Buddhist teacher. She is the first Western woman to be designated as Theravadan Bhikkhuni Preceptor (Pavattini/Upajjhaya), and she has contributed to the going forth and full ordination of women as bhikkhunis in the USA, Australia, India and Thailand. Ven Tathaaloka currently serves as the founding abbess of both the Dhammadharini Monastery in Penngrove and the Aranya Bodhi Hermitage on the Sonoma Coast in Northern California. She also teaches where invited around the greater San Francisco Bay Area, in other states, and internationally.
