Ayya Santini: My Experience of Going Forth into Homelessness

The Indonesian nun Ayya Santiṇī talks about her childhood aspiration to become a bhikkhuṇī, her disappointment when she found out the order had died out in the Theravāda and her joy when she later realised it could be revived.

She also talks about the works that the bhikkhuṇīs have been undertaking in her home country, teaching Dhamma, leading meditation retreats and arranging ordinations.

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