|Great Buddha of Kamakura|
"The Buddha accepted women into his Sangha and they became teachers, transmitters of precepts, playing the same roles as the monks. The first person Jesus revealed Himself to after His resurrection was a woman" (p. 71).

LIFEThursday was my birthday, so now I'm 72. My twin daughters took me to lunch, and my best friend took me to dinner that evening. My son tried to visit the night before, but when he called, I was across town trading in books at the big used books store (Thursday's post shows what I brought home). He found a way to get his card and gift to me on time. I have great kids!
