Reply To: Did the Buddha Discriminate Against Women?


I am not sure, Tobias.

Since that section is in the Tipitaka, there must have been a reason to include them.

However, SOME accounts that I have seen IN TRANSLATIONS (either in English or Sinhala) seem unreal.
But I have not tried to look at the Pali version to confirm the translations.
– There is enough to read in the Tipitaka outside that section!

By the way, I have also not heard Waharaka Thero mention that section except in a couple of instances. It seems that he had also not allocated any significant time to that section.
