Theri Stories, Spiritual Journeys of Nuns

Theri Stories

This is a group of interviews with mainly western and western-educated bhikkhunis recorded in the Dhammasāra Buddhist Monastery in Western Australia over a period of years from 2012-2015.

All the nuns interviewed are remarkably articulate about their own spiritual paths that led them to become Buddhist, and then further on to being nuns and fully ordained in the tradition.

Some of them also talk about the obstacles they had to overcome to achieve their aspirations and the determination they had not to be thwarted on their journey to living a full monastic life.

The stories themselves are really inspirational, and well worth watching. Unfortunately the production values are quite poor, and we sometimes have very poor editing, and unacceptably high background noise. Most however are free of these defects.
