"The Woman Who Raised the Buddha" is a book written by Wendy Garling. It is a historical fiction novel that tells the story of Mahaprajapati Gautami, who was the aunt and foster mother of Siddhartha Gautama, the historical Buddha.

The book takes place in ancient India and follows the life of Mahaprajapati Gautami, who defies tradition and societal expectations to become the first ordained female Buddhist nun. The story also explores the relationship between Mahaprajapati and her nephew, Siddhartha Gautama, as well as her journey to find her own spiritual path.

Through the eyes of Mahaprajapati, the book offers a unique perspective on the early days of Buddhism and the challenges that women faced in a male-dominated society. It is a poignant and inspiring tale of courage, compassion, and self-discovery that sheds light on the often-overlooked role of women in the history of Buddhism.
