Sakyadhita, the name of the International Association of Buddhist Women, means “Daughters of the Buddha.” The objectives of Sakyadhita, as expressed at its founding meeting in 1987 in Bodhgaya, India, are:

  • To promote world peace through the practice of the Buddha’s teachings,
  • To create a network of communications for Buddhist women throughout the world,
  • To promote harmony and understanding among the various Buddhist traditions,
  • To encourage and help educate women as teachers of Buddhadharma,
  • To provide improved facilities for women to study and practice the teachings,
  • To help establish the Bhikshuni Sangha (community of fully-ordained nuns) where it does not currently exist.
