Today is Binara Full Moon Poya day. This day marks Buddha’s visit to Heaven, to preach to his mother and other celestial beings. It also marks the day the Bhikkuni (nun’s) order was finally established. Prajapathi Gothami approached Buddha and pleaded with him to allow women to enter the order. Permission was eventually granted, and Gothami became the first Bhikkuni in Buddhism, along with 500 princesses.
