During a seminar, His Holiness the 17th Karmapa taught us a proper and respect way in Tibetan ¡§tsunma¡¨ (meaning ¡§venerable¡¨) to refer to nuns.  He reminisced that in the area of Kham where he was born, people used the term ¡§jomo¡¨ to refer to nuns.  Jomo was a polite term of respect, reserved in ancient times for queens.
