Welcome Jaidyn,

If you are looking for some female perspectives, you may find some talks by modern bhikkhunis interesting.

Here viewtopic.php?f=14&t=9242 I gave a link to a recent talk by Bhikkhuni Seri.

Ajahn Vayama, who has been a nun/bhikkhuni for many years, has a number of talks here: http://www.dhammaloka.org.au/downloads/ ... ayama.html
It has been some time since I listened to those, since she retired from the leadership role, but I think you'll find that she addresses many issues from a female perspective, such as the history of ordination of bhikkhunis and so on.

:anjali:

Ajahn Thanasanti has given talks on the issue of women in Buddhism. They used to be found online.

And this issue can stand for a whole host of other developments that stand in clear contrast to early expressions of Dhamma.

There needs to be more evidence to establish that something is a later addition other than it being absent in the Mahayana Suttas. Take mindfulness while walking, sitting , lying down for example, because this is not included in the same sutta in Mahayana text someone came to a hasty conclusion this part in the Pali version is was a later addition . Closer examination of other suttas show that this is not the case. If people had listen to that and left out the practice of mindfulness during daily activities, they would not have a strong enough foundation to support their sitting meditation practice/ samma samadhi practice.

When a girl grows up and becomes a parent, she is known as the mother. When a boy grows up and becomes a parent, he is known as the father. Can a girl be a father? Can a guy be a mother? Is the mother second best to the father or are they equal? An arahant and a buddha both achieve the same goal of nibanna, is one really greater than the other? Having reach the goal, would you still be upset that you did it as male or female? The Buddha taught us not to cling onto form as self and why is that? For having such doctrine of self will lead to agitation and continue suffering. When one has reach the sublime goal, the concept of "I am female" or "I am male" ceases.
