Description
 
It is tradition in Zen monasteries to chant a lineage of male teachers from the Buddha’s time to the present day. As Buddhism took root in the West, Amer. Buddhists asked: “What about the women?” There have been accounts of extraordinary women Buddhists, many of whom were recognized by their contemporaries for their powerful practice but excluded from their place in history. Several Buddhist centers have created women’s lineages of their own, and it is these untold legends that Tisdale follows in this book. She traces women Buddhist masters and teachers across continents and cent. She draws upon historical, cultural, and Buddhist records and her own Buddhist practice to bring to life these narratives of ancestral Buddhist women.
