Taiwan: Sakyadhita National Branches

Sakyadhita International Association of Buddhist Women National Taiwan Branch


Sakyadhita Taiwan aims to share the progress and achievements of Taiwanese women with the rest of the world, as well as encourage a dialogue between Taiwanese Buddhists and Buddhists from different backgrounds. We are committed to improving Buddhist-English education and intercultural communication skills. As such, we seek to help cultivate translators and help Taiwanese Buddhist women find opportunities for international exchange, thereby expanding their worldviews.

We seek to improve Buddhist-English education and intercultural communication skills, cultivate quality translators, and help Taiwanese Buddhist women find opportunities for international exchange, thereby expanding their worldviews. Concurrently, we strive to stimulate growth in education, research, culture, and the arts, thereby helping younger generations find opportunities to express their hidden talents. We also encourage Buddhist women in other areas to come learn in Taiwan and have cultural exchanges. We hope what we do can help benefit all sentient beings, foster social harmony, and promote world peace.

As the world becomes increasingly globalized, the question of how to connect with the world whilst fostering a peaceful and healthy society arises. We believe that one of the keys to effective communication is language ability paired with cross-cultural exchange. Over the years, Taiwanese “Sakyadhitas (Daughters of the Buddha),” many who are also influential leaders in their respective fields, have quietly contributed to the world. However, not everyone has the foreign language skills necessary to share their knowledge, experience, etc. with the rest of the world. For instance, Taiwanese Buddhist nuns and laywomen play have ideas/experiences to share and contribute, but some of these women don't yet know any foreign languages, so most of them can't personally attend and/or and fully express themselves and participate at international events.

In order to share the progress and achievements of Taiwanese women with the world and encourage dialogue between Taiwanese Buddhists and Buddhists from different backgrounds, our organization will build upon a foundation of scholarship, culture, and education in our efforts to work towards improving Buddhist-English education and intercultural communication skills; cultivate quality translators; and help Taiwanese Buddhist women have opportunities for international exchange, thereby expanding their worldviews. Concurrently, we strive to stimulate growth in education, research, culture, and the arts thereby helping younger generations find opportunities to express their hidden talents, as well as encourage Buddhist women in other areas to come learn in Taiwan and have cultural exchanges. We hope this can help benefit all sentient beings, foster social harmony, and promote world peace.
