Rotraut Jampa Wurst, Sakyadhita Germany President stated, 

"Sakyadhita Germany feels blessed, that we get the chance to invite Ven. Thich Nu Tinh Quang and that she has offered to hold a workshop at the Sakyadhita Germany meeting.

The idea of working together internationally and staying in touch continues on a smaller scale between Sakyadhita Chapters, just as it has over the past twenty years at the Sakyadhita International Conferences on Buddhist Women. Please join us at the next Sakyadhita Germany meeting in 2018, August 4, 10 am to 1 pm at the Tibetan Centre in Hamburg."

In Gratitude

1st Nuns Conference, December 2013



"I am especially grateful to all the female teachers, lay or ordained-- this does not mean in any way that I am less appreciative towards male teachers. It's just that women do need female practitioners as their role models, and having female role models really hasn't come that easily."

"Throughout our 'his'tory, under thousands of years of social and cultural conditioning in which men have always been valued over women, outstanding female practitioners before this generation of ours have struggled and persisted on their path, unshakable in their Dharma practice."

"I consider our generation (at least for myself!) extremely privileged and fortunate to have the guidance from all these wonderful female Dharma teachers -- in addition to continuing their own Dharma practice, these wonderful female practitioners have guided us with their unique feminine, humble and gentle leadership as well as boundless compassion. How very blessed we've been!"
