I'm looking for any descriptions of Buddhist nuns in any earliest
Specifically, I'm interested in understanding whether our literature
reflected reality, and if so to what extent.
In literature -- How are the Buddhist nuns described?
In reality -- How were they officiated? What did they wear? Did they
wear any jewelry to adorn themselves? Did they shave their head? What
did they eat? Where did they live? Did they maintain their ties with
their kin? What did they do on a daily basis -- did they go around
and preach, and if so what did they do and preach?, ... , so on and
I would appreciate any informative posting on this list. Please also
feel free to contact me directly at: <rajam at earthlink.net>.
Thanks and regards,
