Realising the Potential of Nuns Interview with Tenzin Palmo at Dongyu Gyatsal Ling Nunnery, near Tashijong, India, September 2006 by Di Cousens
http://www.tibet.com/buddhism/geshe.html I wonder what has been the reason given for not accepting women to geshe carriere. Is it known? Who of the Tibetan Buddhist scholars invented this? (in case it has been invented by some Tibetan.) Which words have been used?
Tenzin Palmo said in this interview: "So gradually things will begin to change for the better. Also in Kyabje Penor Rinpoche’s nunnery, a number of nuns have graduated and to all extents and purposes should eventually be able to become Khenmos.
How in history have women been prevented from becoming geshes? practically, I mean.
Maybe the answer is to be found here, .
