Buddhist women have made many contributions to the spiritual and material well-being of human society. Now they are poised to play an even greater role in shaping a just and peaceful world. The next Sakyadhita conference will highlight the connections between spiritual cultivation, social transformation, and gender justice.
Indonesia is home to some of Asia's oldest Buddhist cultural monuments, dating back as early as the seventh century. Today, Buddhist communities are found in central Java, Sumatra, Bali, and islands throughout the archipelago. Buddhist cultural elements mix freely with indigenous cultural forms to create a colorful tapestry of sounds, images, and ideas.
We warmly invite you to join this rich Dharma festival in June 2015. Gather together with like-minded friends to celebrate Buddhist women's potential and envision a more just and compassionate world. Learn and practice the skills we all need to change ourselves, change the world, and create a healthy future.
