SEBC Book Discussion – In Search of Buddha’s Daughters
August 25 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Sunday, August 25th, 2019 | 2 PM – 3 PM | The Book Tavern
The Southeastern Buddhist Community is holding a discussion of Christine Toomey’s book, In Search of Buddha’s Daughters. The discussion will be upstairs at The Book Tavern on August 25th from 2 to 3 PM. Read a synopsis of the book below:
“They come to the monastic Buddhist life from every faith and career: a policewoman, a princess, a Bollywood star, a violinist. Out of the public eye, despite hardship and even persecution, they vow to seek enlightenment in a world full of noise.
Who are these women? What motivates them, and what stands in their way? Award-winning journalist Christine Toomey investigates. From Nepal to California, she encounters unforgettable nuns who reveal the blessings—and perils—of carrying a 2,500-year tradition into the twenty-first century. Often denied equal status with monks, they are nonetheless devoted—to their faith, and to change.”
