First edition.

"A testimony to the important contributions made by the women who were direct disciples of the Buddha-and a source of inspiration to Buddhist women today. In this book, esteemed scholar-monk Bhikkhu Anālayo examines accounts of the first female disciples of the Buddha available in the early discourses and their parallels, taking the reader back to the earliest period in the history of Buddhism that can still be accessed today.
