From an award-winning journalist, here is the story of an unforgettable journey from the east to the west in the company of the extraordinary women who choose to dedicate their lives to Buddhism. Every year, thousands of women choose to become Buddhist nuns. As they enter holy orders, they become part of a long tradition of female spirituality that stretches back through the centuries and now embraces the radical possibility that the next Dalai Lama could be a woman. In Buddha's Daughters, award-winning reporter Christine Toomey follows in the footsteps of earlier generations of nuns to trace the historical spread of the religion from a remote area of India, now modern-day Nepal, in the 6th century BC to a rugged peninsula in southwest Ireland today. Beginning in the highest reaches of the Himalayas in Nepal, close to the birthplace of the Buddha, Toomey travels through Burma, Thailand, Japan and Taiwan in the East, and then on to Europe and North America in the West, along the way visiting contemporary nunneries to meet the women who practise there. From the 'kung fu' nuns of Kathmandu to the shaven-headed novitiates in Washington, Toomey reveals the daily reality of the Buddhist existence and learns more about the diverse spiritual paths leading these women towards Nirvana.Combining travelogue, history and first person interviews, Buddha's Daughters will open the door on a previously secret world of ritual and discipline, reflection and enlightenment.
