The Story of Patacara

by Dayalocana (2010)

As part of the celebration of Sangha Day, Dayalocana first defines the difference between the Arya Sangha and the Maha Sangha. She then recounts the harrowing story of the Buddhist nun Patacara and the hardships that she went through before encountering the Buddha and becoming one of his foremost female disciples.
