I’ve been keeping my monthly column on Buddhism going with interviews with two very different and very remarkable women: Reverend Teijo Munnich, a Zen priest and founder of Great Tree Zen Temple; and Venerable Karma Lekshe Tsomo, scholar and co-founder of the Sakyadhita Conference, which discusses women’s issues in Buddhism. Speaking with these women gives me perspective on how nuns and laywomen around the world are working for women within the religion, and seeking change through personal transformation as well as political and societal shifts. Check out the links above to enjoy the profiles, or click the picture of Ven. Teijo Munnich to access her article.
