King Suddhodana died, Lady Prajapati Gotami felt very sad.
She and several other women decided to leave the worldly life
and join the Buddha's group of monks to practice the Dharma.
So she led the women to see the Buddha. She asked him to accept
them as nuns, but the Buddha refused. The women felt very
disappointed and cried. But they did not give up their wish
to become nuns.
