The aim of this chapter is to explore why British women might seek ordination within Buddhist groups, looking at the types of journeys that they make and the ways that they narrate them. This chapter has a comparative function, examining British women’s narratives and experiences in the light of existing scholarship about Buddhist nuns and renunciant women in other geographic and cultural locales. In doing so, the chapter begins to establish the role of the British location in shaping Buddhist women’s religious practices.
