August 3 2010 Buddhism Newsletter


Hi all,

I hope you are having a wonderful summer. Here are the latest two articles from the Buddhism site at BellaOnline:

Review - PBS Documentary Film 'The Buddha'
PBS recently aired the original documentary 'The Buddha', by Director David Grubin, featuring narration by Richard Gere, and commentary by the Dalai Lama and many Buddhist academics, teachers, and writers. It is now available for DVD rental or purchase, so be sure to check out this review.

Profile of Machig Labdron, Mother of Chod
Machig Labdron was an eleventh-century woman Tibetan Buddhist teacher and lineage holder who helped establish the Tibetan Chod Tantric practice for transmuting inner demons.

Here are some quotes from each article to peak your interest:
From Zen practitioner and poet Jane Hirshfield, in 'The Buddha':

"Buddhism does not argue with reality. There will always be both the potential for awakening in any moment, and the potential for incredible damage at any moment. And if we fool ourselves into thinking we're past that, we will do incredible damage."

From Lama Tsultrim Allione, contemporary Chod teacher and acknowledged emanation of Machig Labdron:

"The process of feeding our demons is a method for bringing our shadow into consciousness and accessing the treasures it holds rather than repressing it."

In Peace,
