Female patrons of early Buddhism in ancient India: an epigraphical analysis

Female patrons of early Buddhism in ancient India: an epigraphical analysis

ABSTRACT

According to the 2001 census, India, the land of the Buddha is home to 3,881,052 female Buddhist devotees.1 There are an estimated 300 million Buddhist women worldwide, including more than 130,000 nuns. This growing community stands proudly on the shoulders of the lay women devotees and nuns who have been an integral part of the Sangha, almost since its inception. However, apart from the heart-rendering stories narrated in the Therigatha1, in which the early bhikkhuni recount their struggles and accomplishments along the road to arahatship, no historical evidence has yet been given due significance. As a result, the record of early Buddhist women’s contributions rests entirely with the literary characters of the Therigatha.
