Ajahn Brahm talks about the banning of his speech on Gender Equality Featured
Ajahn Brahm’s talk last Friday was a very special one – it was about gender equality and about how his paper on Gender Equality for the United Nations Day of Vesak in Vietnam two weeks ago was banned at the last moment. Due to technical difficulties, we were not able to broadcast this talk. But here is a video which merges our audio recording of Ajahn Brahm’s talk with some photos and videos of the recent ordination of four bhikkunis at Dhammasara monastery.
Gender Equality paper by Ajahn Brahm
Last week the International Committee for the United Nations Day of Vesak, led by the rector of a Buddhist University prevented Ajahn Brahm from delivering his pre-approved speech on Gender Equality at the United Nations Day of Vesak convention in Vietnam. Ajahn Brahm's paper had been pre approved by conference authorities.
