Generally speaking Buddha did
not differentiate between caste, sex or origin in terms of accessibility
to the path to spiritual liberation. This means that all beings
have the opportunity to be happy.
Buddha Shakyamuni had no belief in converting people to Buddhism,
yet he approved of providing supportive environment for people
to practice in, if they were so inclined.
In the past, it was the Drukpa Lineage
which had the most nuns and the largest nunnery in all of Tibet,
and until ten years ago His Holiness Gyalwang Drukpa had no
intention of building another nunnery. Then he was approached
by many Ladakh and Tibetan women who had taken a strong interest
in becoming ordained.
