Subject: Ordination of women
Ken O’Neil raises several issues, including: ‘1.Denial of ordination to women in Shri Lanka… 2. Tibetan inability to reintroduce ordination of women as nuns.’
Give them time; it will happen. As far as I know, ordination as full //bhik.su.niis// never reached Japan (as it did Shri Lanka, Burma, China, and Korea, but not Tibet or Thailand), and ordination as //bhik.sus// following //Vinaya// has all but lapsed in Japan. So how about the right of men and women to full ordination in Japan? (just teasing).
