Ocean of Dharma

Dharma is Universal

Since dharma, the Buddhist teaching, is universal, we cannot say to what sex or gender the dharma belongs. Maybe it belongs to neither or either. As long as you respect your manhood or your womanhood, your masculinity and femininity will be an integral part of your being on the spiritual path.

From “Femininity,” in Selected Writings, The Collected Works of Chogyam Trungpa, Volume  Six, page 566.
