Weʼre raising £500 to reprint the Bhikkhuni Patimokkha -- ancient Buddhist training rules for modern women

Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
Copies of the 'Bhikkhuni Patimokkha' (training rules and guidelines for nuns) are needed for the upcoming international Bhikkhuni ordination in Bodhgaya in Feb 2019. And for general distribution both to monastics, lay practitioners, and other interested people.
Why is this important? Training guidelines are an important part of how the Buddha suggested we train our minds. And this book lists hundreds of his suggestions. For example, one guideline I'm adopting is to accept food with gratitude. I see this book as a treasure trove of ideas, a precious resource for bringing more clarity to our personal practice
The goal is to raise £500 for the printing of 300 copies of this book. The book is editted by Bhikkhunī Tathālokā Therī and Bhikkhunī Nimmalā, and supported by Friends of Early Buddhist Teachings.
Please consider donating a few quid, and know you're helping people in their training of the mind to live more skillfully in the world.
Thank you very much!
