January 24 @ 7:00 pm8:30 pm

 

In Tibet, the word for woman translates as “lower rebirth.” In a remote eastern region of the country, the Tsoknyi Nangchen nuns defy this definition. Devoted to the ancient practices of Tibetan Buddhism – once primarily a male domain – over 3,000 nuns have attained elevated status. Blessings explains the Tibetan Buddhist monastic system and the changing role of women within it.
