Female disciples of the Buddha

The story Zac read today was about Khemā of Great Wisdom. He goes on to say, “the other story that I didn’t get to was about Bhaddā Kuṇḍalakesā: The Debating Ascetic. The material was from Great Disciples of the Buddha (publishers website here, full PDF here).”

Slightly different versions of these stories can be found here:
