Order of Bilkkuni

The Buddha established the Order of the Sangha or Bikkhu <monks> and the Order of Bilkkuni <nuns> for men and women wishing to renounce the world and live a life of purity, austerity, perseverance and self-discipline. Not everyone is expected to lead the life of a monk or a nun to achieve one's goal although one's spiritual progress is expedited by this process.
