In this audiobook we will be exploring poems composed by the Arahat bhikkhunīs or enlightened Buddhist
nuns of old, looking at these poems as springs of inspiration for contemporary Buddhists. Most of the
poems we will consider come from the Therīgāthā, a small section of the vast Pali Canon.
From the poems of the enlightened nuns of the Buddha’s time contemporary followers of the Noble
Eightfold Path can receive a great deal of instruction, help and encouragement. These verses can assist us
in developing morality, concentration and wisdom, the three sections of the path. With their aid we will
be able to work more effectively towards eliminating our mental defilements and towards finding lasting
peace and happiness.
