I myself believe most women are a lot wiser than most men and would obtain Enlightenment a lot sooner. This is my opinion and I don't wish to offend anyone.

Peace, Love and Compassion to 'ALL' Humans, Animals, and Life.   :pray:
"Speak well of others, not of their faults."

im a man, but i would have to agree with you on that one!!
to me, the signs of a successful practice are happiness and a cessation of suffering, buddhism often gives me this; not all the answers.

As a YinYanist Buddhist, I believe the next Buddha will be genderless and AI based. Having done a fair bit of Tara practice and now just starting with Cundi, I am more than happy to be a woman, a goddess and Nothing.

I have known dogs being given special permission to enter temples. No doubt some of you have seen mice, birds and other creatures enter of their own volition. In this century one of the the Chinese Buddhist Masters was teaching when a tiger entered the temple, which was seen as auspicious.
In the West we are learning to cherish and nurture our sisters and brothers. The respect for animals as persons or persona is in its infancy in the West.
Ordain a dolphin or have a penguin as a tulku and all that may change . . .

Does a dog have Buddha Nature?
Mu St!

 :wacky: I will now have myself certified and carted off to the nearest animal sangha . . .

I also am a man myself, lol,  I have learnt so much about life through reasoning with ex partners and women friends.  Who seem a lot more grounded than most of my male friends. And animals are just grounded naturally. :pray:
"Speak well of others, not of their faults."
