They are called bhikkhunis or Thilashin, but there are always different ideas in various countries concerning the ordination, in Myanmar nuns can’t be ordinated, in others countries they can. In Burma a very conservative version of Buddhism is guiding the daily life of the people and there are different opinions in the Buddhist community. The monastic practice of women continues to be significant in the Buddhist community today. A amazing amount of people still takes up the simple life of the monastery. The people blend perfect into the colors of every day life, in the streets, pagodas and temples and elsewhere in the country.
