Editorial Reviews

Charles S. Prebish
...[T]he book offers much in its translations, presented in an easily accessible fashion, and in its important contribution to continuing studies of nuns' Vinaya. This reviewer hopes that Karma Lekshe Tsomo's next book will pick up where this one concludes and offer her understanding of the shape of that "new generation of women Buddhist practitioners" and the way in which it might "awaken and renew the spiritual life force of the tradition."
