The bhikkhuni order was established at the time of the Buddha and exists until this day.

This booklet is a collection of Concerning the lineage of Bhikshuni ordination book I have written over the past several years concerning the recent efforts to revive the Bhikkhunī Saṅgha in the Theravāda tradition.
Some of these pieces have appeared on-line; others have simply been circulated by mail. Concerning the lineage of Bhikshuni ordination: proceedings of the Seminar of Mulasarvastivada, Theravada, and Dharmagupta Vinaya Holders, 3rd-5th August at. Based on the spread of the bhikkhuni lineage to countries like China, Taiwan, Korea, Vietnam, Japan and Sri Lanka, other scholars support ordination of Theravada bhikkhunis.
