Contemporary Buddhists

Interviews and articles on contemporary Buddhist teachers, and famous Buddhists.

Aung San Suu Kyi and Burmese Buddhism star
Burmese pro-democracy leader Aung San Suu Kyi has been in the news lately, due to her trial for accepting a visitor while under house arrest. What is less often discussed is the fact that she is Buddhist, and that Buddhism has played a prominent role in the development of her political philosophy.

Celebrity Buddhists star
Interest in Buddhism in the West has partly been spurred on by the many sports and entertainment personalities that have said they are Buddhist (or have been rumored to be.) Here's a partial list, setting the record straight on a few.

Interview with Sylvia Boorstein star
Read what Sylvia Boorstein, American Buddhist teacher and author, has to say about happiness, caring, fear, writing, mothering, Judaism, and more!

Interview with Zen Priest Karen Maezen Miller star
Zen priest and author of Momma Zen, Karen Maezen Miller, answers questions on writing, Zen practice, teachers, women in Buddhism, marriage, and more. Wisdom we can all relate to and apply.

The Future of the Dalai Lama star
The current Dalai Lama, leader of the Tibetan people, is in his 70s, triggering concerns about who will succeed him and how they will be chosen. He has also recently resigned from the political aspect of his role. Learn why and what that means.
