Does it mean that bhikshunis cannot transmit shamini precepts either? Why won’t the precept substance be transmitted? Emituofo.
In some cases, Bhikshunis are allowed to transmit precepts.
However, it is not advisable to go deeper into this matter because it’s really not for public discussion.

It is as per our Vinaya that the precept substance can only be conferred by going through the proper protocol.
