Sakyadhita: Daughters Of The Buddha


Sakyadhita, “Daughters of the Buddha,” the world’s first and leading international organization of Buddhist women, is an alliance of women (and men) committed to transforming the lives of women in Buddhist societies. This international alliance was founded at the conclusion of the first International Conference on Buddhist Women, held in Bodhgaya, India, in 1987, organized by Karma Lekshe Tsomo. Sakyadhita seeks to unite Buddhist women of diverse countries and traditions, to promote their welfare and to facilitate their work for the benefit of humanity.
