Hi all,

As Women's History Month comes to a close, I have added another profile of a woman Buddhist teacher and practitioner:

Jomo Memo - 13th Century Tibetan 'Terton'
In celebration of Women's History Month, learn about one of the few 'tertons', or discoverers of hidden knowledge, within Tibetan Buddhist history - Jomo Memo.


If you haven't already checked out the other articles in the Women in Buddhism section of the site, I'd love for you to do so - it includes profiles of other Buddhist women, as well as articles on feminine symbols/deities such as Green Tara, and an article on the Therigatha, containing the first sutras by women:


In closing, here is a favorite quote of mine from Sharon Salzburg, one of the founders of the Insight Meditation Society:

"Beginning again and again IS the actual practice, not a problem to overcome so that one day we can come to the 'real' meditation." - Sharon Salzburg

In Peace,

Lisa Erickson, Buddhism Editor
