WAiB Pages

Female Teachers in Buddhism

This section of our site has become so extensive that, to keep download time (comparatively) short, it is now divided into FIVE pages.  See also our events calendar which includes teachings and retreats led by women.

Note:  Each of these pages includes thumbnail photographs of the teachers.  I've kept file size of each one as low as possible, but these photos do add to the download time.  If you're worried about bandwidth, remember that you can turn off the images on your browse.
