1 Sara Di Diego = "Mahapajapati Gotami was the first woman to request to be ordained by Buddha.  After Buddha refused, she cut all her hair and wore yellow robes.  She followed Buddha, along with a group of Sakyan women.  Ananda appealed to Buddha, so Buddha conceded that if a woman followed the Eight Conditions, she could become a nun.Work Cited:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahapajapati_Gotami"
2 Sara Di Diego = "Mahapajapati was given her name because augurs prophesied that she would have a large following."
