“Bhikkhunis” for Golden Era of Bhikkhunis….

In Buddhism, women can openly aspire to and practice for the highest level of spiritual attainment. Buddhism is unique among Indian religions in that the Buddha as founder of a spiritual tradition explicitly states in canonical literature that a woman is as capable of nirvana as men and can fully attain all four stages of enlighten. Our mission is to write and publish on pure Buddhism with Bhikkhunis activities and share them via different print media and online media platforms worldwide. “Bhikkhunis” has been successfully distributed to over 40 countries up to date, and & worldwide absolutely free of charge distributing.

“Bhikkhunis” Proudly Presents to Highest Bhikkhuni Sasana….

According to Buddhist scriptures, the order of Bhikkhunis was first created by the Buddha at the specific request of His Aunt and Foster – Mother “Mahapajapati Gotami”, who became the first ordained Bhikkhuni. During the time of Buddha, the First Bhikkhuni ordination took place in the fifth year after the Buddha’s Enlightenment. The Buddha’s words were “I allow Nuns to be ordained by Monks”. Following Buddha’s instructions, “Mettavalokanaya” – Sri Lankan’s Most Popular & Leading Monthly International Buddhist Magazine and Website decided starting their second and newly magazine & website specially for whole Bhikkhunis (Nuns) in the world. This is the World’s First Time, and this is the First International Bhikkhunis Magazine & Website. Today marks a very special day for me, because I had one dream to publish one special Buddhist Magazine Specially for Bhikkhunis in the World. I am not a Monk or Bhikkhuni or Lady, but as a Layman I have achieved my target and appeared to do this Golden “Bhikkhunis” Magazine. Because, I always respect to Bhikkhunis as my Mother. According to my vast globally knowledge with experience & 20 years International Buddhist propagate efforts, I always do in my best to the Bhikkhuni Sasana forever. For the first time in Sri Lankan & Overseas Buddhist Magazines history, “Bhikkhunis” has been published in English, which includes60 pages of articles related to Buddhism and Bhikkhuni Sasana. The magazine comprises special articles written by leading and Senior Bhikkhunis in overseas.
