Abstract
This paper discusses the formal issues involved in the two stages (novice and probationer) that precede the full ordination of Buddhist religious women, as they are given in the early textual background of the Dharmaguptaka tradition: the age of the candidates, the precepts to be followed, the ordination procedure, and the role played by the full members of the community, nuns and monks.
