13th Sakyadhita International Conference for Buddhist Women (2013)

The conference theme, "Buddhism at the Grassroots," highlights the efforts and achievements of Buddhist women who work to alleviate the sufferings of living beings "on the ground." Presenters will share their own work and a variety of approaches, including social activism, performance, education, meditation, and philosophy.
