Equal Opportunity

Jampa Tsedroen & Thea Mohr (hrsg.): With dignity and perseverance. Trees may help you with your research. The renewal of Buddhist reburied, edition steinrich 2011 the Buddhist nun Bhikshuni Jampa Tsedroen (Carola Roloff) teaches Buddhist philosophy at the Tibetan Centre in Hamburg and is lecturer and research fellow at the University of Hamburg with the specialty of the ordination of nuns and women in Buddhism. In 2007 an International Congress held in Hamburg along with the Dalai Lama, which dealt with the question of the ordination of women in Buddhism. Because, although the Buddha founded also a reburied more than 2500 years ago in addition to the truths, women in Theravada Buddhism is today as in Tibetan Buddhism denied the right to live a life as a fully ordained nun. The Dalai Lama himself is passionately committed to the equality of the sexes in Buddhism without the Buddhism will have barely a future.

The most important contributions of the Conference are included in this volume. You are among other things, how it ever happened, that nuns do not are on an equal footing and for example not fully can ordain as but the Buddha himself had founded the reburied. The story, as well as the classical Buddhist literature are very well lit and presented in a way that even layman can understand it. A large part of the contributions devoted to the question of how this situation can be changed. The many different proposals and solutions show that the issue is addressed, and it remains to hope that a final solution no longer wait to. This an excerpt from a post of a longtime nun: In general, the term means human rights, that certain fundamental rights and freedoms people have.

Religious rights and freedoms are usually considered to be the most basic of all human rights. To freely practice the Dharma, all people must both have female as male, access to equal opportunities, to study their religious beliefs and practice and to pursue their religious goals. So how you today look at countries where one denies women the right to vote, as backward, Buddhists will enter certainly negatively in the history, if deprived of them of women’s fundamental rights and freedoms. At the same time, it is clear that the access to the full ordination for women hand in hand with the Buddhist education and support for women in monastic life through the community must go. Assuming the same opportunities for education and ordination women promise to support the tradition and bring great benefit Buddhist societies and the human society as a whole. The recognition of the full ordination for women is not only a matter of social justice, but it is also simply a matter of common sense.” The Conference, as well as the book represent an important milestone on the way towards full equality of women in Buddhism.
