This talk by Ajahn Sujato came at a watershed moment in 2009 when the first fully ordained nuns (bhikkhunis) were ordained in Western Australia. Ajahn Sujato explains what it means to be fully ordained, why it is important, and why it is important to have fully ordained nuns in the contemporary world so that there are equal opportunities for both women and men to follow the whole of the Buddhist path, just as was the case in the time of the Buddha.
