Sakyadhita International was formed in 1987 in Bodhgaya India under the patronage of HH the Dalai Lama. It seeks to build community to benefit Buddhist women and nuns, to reduce gender injustice and awaken women to their potential.
Every two years Sakyadhita International organises a conference where Buddhist nuns and laywomen come together to share issues affecting women and the wider society. An initiative created at the 2019 conference was the Alliance for Buddhist Ethics.
The Australian branch has national representation and is affiliated with Sakyadhita International.
