Compelling and informative teachings by the most influential female Buddhist teachers on a wide range of topics.

Buddhism, like all world religions, has been largely shaped and defined by men. Yet despite the challenges, women have diligently practiced since the days of the Buddha. A hallmark of Western Buddhism is the prominent role that women teachers play. Buddha's Daughters showcases women teachers who have been pivotal in shaping Western Buddhism and reveals the incredible diversity of their teachings. The pieces in this book touch on universal truths as well as illuminate Buddhist concepts and practices, such as meditation, tonglen, lovingkindness, cultivating gratitude, and social action as seen through a Buddhist lens.
