The Woman Who Raised the Buddha presents Mahaprajapati's life story and reveals her exceptional role as leader of the first generation of Buddhist women.

Wendy Garling illuminates the complex figure of Mahaprajapati, who raised and shaped the Buddha and was an important voice for early Buddhist women.
