Sakyadhita is a clearinghouse for a number of resources on women and gender in Buddhism. We are working to make those resources more easily accessible through this website and a variety of social media platforms. Please bear with us as we continue to improve these resources. If you have questions or concerns please feel free to contact us

Sakyadhita Newsletters


The Sakyadhita newsletter has been published once or twice a year since 1990 and currently is mailed to its members. The newsletter contains information on the Sakyadhita International conferences, articles on the most recent conferences, reviews of recently published books related to women and Buddhism, and other articles of interest to women practitioners of the Dharma. All of the articles are written by Sakyadhita members on a volunteer basis. If you're interested in volunteering, please contact us.
