Project On Women Ancestors
Project Leader: Mokuo Nancy Sherwood
Mission Statement: Collaboratively research the women ancestors of the Silent Thunder Order. By creating a document that provides a brief biography, writings, and contributions of each, to honor these women.
Vision Statement: Provide an interactive database of the lives and contributions of the Buddhist women ancestors of the Silent Thunder Order, to be used as teachings for all practitioners.
In addition all member of FSZS, beginning in 2022, will explore each ancestor offering comment about the ancestor.
We will review man and women ancestor to see who were alive during the same period.
We will look into the teachings of men women of the same era to explore similarity and differences of their teaching
We acknowledge and bow to the members of the Soto Zen Buddhist Association who compiled the list of ancestors that serve as the baseline for this project
