True Equality



Dharmadatta Community Nuns

Women, Ananda, having gone forth

are able to realize the fruit of stream-entry,

or the fruit of once-returning,

or the fruit of non-returning,

or complete enlightenment.


What does gender matter at all,

when the mind is concentrated well,

when knowledge flows on steadily

as one sees correctly into the Dharma?


One to whom it might occur,

“I am a woman” or “I am a man”

or “I’m anything at all” is deceived.

—Buddha Shakyamuni

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.

      Thanks! The text is The Thirty-seven Verses on the Practice of a Bodhisattva. There are various versions, but there’s no need to buy a book. I’ll bring copies. TN
