Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The ordination of women in Buddhism is currently and historically practiced in some Buddhist regions, such as East Asia, and now once again in Sri Lanka, as well as newly beginning in some Western countries to which Buddhism has recently spread, such as America. The tradition of the ordained monastic community (sangha) began with the Buddha, who established an order of Bhikkhus (monks). According to the scriptures, later, after an initial reluctance, he also established an order of Bhikkhunis (nuns or women monks). However, according to the scriptural account, not only did the Buddha lay down more rules of discipline for the bhikkhunis (311 compared to the bhikkhu's 227 in the Theravada version), he also made it more difficult for them to be ordained, and made them subordinate to monks.
