Woman under primitive Buddhism
From the Jacket: "The book is an attempt to present the position of Buddhist laywomen and almswomen in historical perspective. For the study of the laywomen the author has exploited the material found in the Canonical literature, and the Commentaries on them".
Chapters depict the laywomen as mother, daughter, wife, widow and worker. Other chapters depict almswomen, their admission into the Order, the Eight Chief Rules, and Life in the Order.
