Binara Full Moon Poya Day

Yesterday was the full moon of September known as Binara Poya day. It celebrates the founding of the Buddhist order of nuns, Bhikkhunis. The first nun was the Buddha's foster Mother Maha Pajapati.

Read her story here.

And read the amazing poems written by the early nuns here.
