I haven't been writing as frequently this summer, but am looking forward to ramping up again in September. Among other things, I will be reviewing Pema Chodron's latest book, and would love to receive suggestions for other article topics, interviews, or product reviews.
Here's my two August articles, the first an addition to the 'Basics' section of the site, and the second a review of one of my favorite Buddhist books:
The Three Marks of Existence
The Buddha taught that there are three characteristics of everything we experience in our world - impermanence, suffering or dissatisfaction, and 'no-self'. Understanding the true nature of these is the foundation for Buddhist wisdom and the attainment of nirvana.
Book Review - Women of Wisdom
Lama Tsultrim Allione is one of the leading women Buddhist teachers in the West today, and this book includes both her own compelling personal story, as well as the sacred biographies of six historical Tibetan Buddhist yoginis.
