For centuries, Tibetan monks have held an annual month-long debating session called Jang Gonchoe, an integral part of their Buddhist practice. The practice of debate joins logical thinking with a deeper understanding of Buddhist philosophy. It is an essential part of monastic education in the Tibetan tradition.
Nuns can attend a month-long debating session and take a step closer to educational equality. Your donation will help with a nun’s expenses so she can attend this important session, once only available to monks.
