Description About the author Contents
First Buddhist Women traces the journey of the wives, mothers, teachers, courtesans, prostitutes, and wanders who became the first female disciples of the Buddha. Susan Murcott's lively translation and commentary of the Therigatha, the earliest known collection of women's religious poetry, is surprisingly timeless, addressing issues of spiritual enlightenment and societal expectations that are still relevant today.

The poetry and stories in this book provide historical insight into how Buddhism became one of the first religions to welcome women and offers inspiration for anyone looking for spiritual role models. Diana Winston's moving introduction is a personal testament to the power of this book to change lives.
