The notion that a nun can be educated and that being born a female is not a punishment of past deeds is currently challenging thousands of years of history. Through Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo, Chamba Landro, experts, and nuns young and old we explore the paradox that being a woman in Tibetan Buddhism is: that a fundamental spiritual equality does not equate in any way to equality in the practical life.
In the Shadow of Buddha is a documentary in progress.
