Women Effect Women Effect is an initiative which transitioned in to the Wharton Social Impact Initiative WSII at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania, to provide an information hub for content and experience in the field of investing with a gender lens, women as investors, and investing to have a positive effect on women and girls. The initiative moved to WSII in March, , with some significant changes, carrying forward a research and evidence building agenda and helping a variety of actors to make sense of this emerging field. The work of many visionary leaders has inspired a movement that believes in the power of finance to achieve large-scale social impact and to address some of our most pressing economic and social issues. The goal with Women Effect was to increase the capital moving with a gender lens, creating durable and systemic change for women and girls worldwide — both as investors and beneficiaries of invested capital.

When an ignorant person builds up attachments, That idiot returns to suffering, again and again. So let one who understands not build up attachments: May I never again lie with a broken skull!
A monkey went up to the little hut With five doors. On each door, again and again. I was born in a low-class family, Poor, with little to eat. My job was lowly— I threw out the old flowers. Shunned by people, I was disregarded and treated with contempt.

Staying alone in the wilderness, Without laziness, I did what the teacher said, As the conqueror had advised me. In the first watch of the night, I recollected my previous births. In the middle watch of the night, I purified the divine eye. In the last watch of the night, I tore apart the mass of darkness. Homage to you, supreme among men!

I think he will quickly abandon sensual desire. His psychic power made the river Sarabhu stand still; Gavampati is unbound and unperturbed. The gods bow to that great sage, Who has left behind all attachments, And gone beyond rebirth in any state of existence.

Go, leave these people,.
