Ayya Dhammananda: History of Mahapajapati Gotami

In this illustrated talk given by the Thai bhikkhuni Ayya Dhammananda we hear about the lineage and history of the Buddha’s step-mother and aunt, who became the first Buddhist bhikkhuni, and the legacy she has passed on to us today.

The talk was recorded by Teik Leong Lim at the opening of the Gotami Vihara in Kuala Lumpur on June 2nd.

Warning: the sound quality is uneven, and at times it sounds like someone was scratching a comb back and forth over the microphone 🙂 Most is OK though.
