Dating a buddhist girl

When there is a talk about women and Buddhism, I have noticed that people often regard the topic as something new and different. We are not bringing something new into a 2,500-year-old tradition.

As Susan Murcott comments, "The nun's sangha was a radical experiment for its time." Perhaps Mahakassappa and the bhikkhus of that time were jealous of the bhikkhunis being more popular and doing more teaching and social work than the bhikkhus.In Theravada Buddhism, the modern school based on the Buddhist philosophy of the earliest dated texts, Buddhahood is a rare event.The focus of practice is primarily on attaining Arhatship and the Pali Canon has examples of both male and female Arhats who attained nirvana.If the aspiration to Buddhahood has been made and a Buddha of the time confirms it, it is impossible to be reborn as a woman.An appropriate aim is for women to aspire to be reborn as male.
