Black and Buddhist by Cheryl A. Giles,Pamela Ayo Yetunde Summary

Leading African American Buddhist teachers offer lessons on racism, resilience, spiritual freedom, and the possibility of a truly representative American Buddhism. With contributions by Acharya Gaylon Ferguson, Cheryl A. Giles, Gyōzan Royce Andrew Johnson, Ruth King, Kamilah Majied, Lama Rod Owens, Lama Dawa Tarchin Phillips, Sebene Selassie, and Pamela Ayo Yetunde. What does it mean to be Black and Buddhist? In this powerful collection of writings, African American teachers from all the major Buddhist traditions tell their stories of how race and Buddhist practice have intersected in their lives. The resulting explorations display not only the promise of Buddhist teachings to empower those facing racial discrimination but also the way that Black Buddhist voices are enriching the Dharma for all practitioners. As the first anthology comprised solely of writings by African-descended Buddhist practitioners, this book is an important contribution to the development of the Dharma in the West.

Dreaming Me by Jan Willis Summary

Jan Willis is not Baptist or Buddhist. She is simply both. Dreaming Me is the story of her life, as a child growing up in the Jim Crow South, dealing with racism in an Ivy League college, and becoming involved with the Black Panther Party. But it wasn't until meeting Lama Yeshe, a Tibetan Buddhist monk living in the mountains of Nepal, that she realized who the real Jan Willis was, and how to make the most of the life she was living.

L'énergie de la prière by Thich Nhat Hanh Summary

Pourquoi prier ? et à qui nous adressons-nous dans la prière ? Pourquoi certaines de nos prières sont-elles suivies d'effet et d'autres pas ? Dans ce petit manuel d'une limpide profondeur spirituelle, le maître zen Thich Nhat Hanh nous révèle, à travers sa longue expérience méditative, tous les aspects de cette mystérieuse énergie qui nous porte à prier. Dans une vision universelle et oecuménique, Thich Nhat Hanh envisage la prière comme un besoin humain fondamental, ne relevant d'aucune religion particulière, mais aussi naturel à l'homme que respirer. Et pour donner force à l'acte de prier, le maître Zen nous engage à développer nos capacités d'attention, de concentration et de pleine présence à la vie. L'énergie de la prière nous introduit à une variété de techniques spirituelles bouddhiques, mais nous offre aussi une magnifique méditation sur le Notre Père et démontre que la prière représente une pratique de gratitude accessible à tous, susceptible de nous ouvrir à l'amour et de nourrir nos vies de sérénité, de joie et de bonheur. Dans notre époque en mal de spiritualité, ce petit guide est un ami précieux.

Bouddha rebelle by Dzogchen PONLOP Summary

Bouddha, comme vous ne l'avez jamais vu ! Et si Bouddha, loin de son image de vieux sage impassible, était avant tout un agitateur, un révolutionnaire pourfendeur des idées reçues et des vieux dogmes à la dent dure ? S'appuyant sur des années d'expérience dans l'enseignement du bouddhisme, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoché dépoussière la tradition et la rend accessible à tous. Avec un humour décapant, il nous propose sa méthode pour une pratique moderne et en perpétuelle évolution. Vous avez l'impression de laisser la confusion, l'angoisse, le stress régner en maîtres sur votre quotidien ? Et si, à la manière du Bouddha, vous vous rebelliez contre vous-même ? Oubliez les statuettes replètes, les coussins ergonomiques, les vapeurs d'encens. Non, le bouddhisme ne se pratique pas à l'ombre d'un arbre centenaire en compagnie de moines rasés. Le bouddhisme est actuel, résolument dans notre époque. Et, surtout, le bouddhisme est avant tout une philosophie de la rébellion. Grâce à ce livre ludique et pédagogique, partez à la découverte du rebelle en vous. Questionnez votre perception de vous-même et du monde. Libérez votre esprit des carcans qui le paralysent. Et n'hésitez pas à désobéir pour découvrir qui vous êtes vraiment. Une relecture provocante et dynamique de la tradition bouddhiste qui nous enseigne à pratiquer l'attention et la méditation pour mieux gérer nos émotions et connaître enfin la liberté, la vraie.

L'acceptation radicale by Tara BRACH Summary

Il y a quelque chose qui ne tourne pas rond chez moi... C'est ma faute, si j'avais fait un autre choix, tout ça ne serait pas arrivé... Combien de fois par jour nous flagellons-nous avec de telles pensées négatives ? " Si j'avais agi autrement, si j'avais fait un autre choix, tout cela ne serait pas arrivé... " Combien de fois par jour nous flagellons-nous avec de telles pensées négatives ? Cet état permanent de haine envers nous-mêmes, d'intolérance envers nos propres échecs nous empoisonne la vie. Face à cette souffrance de ne jamais se sentir à la hauteur, Tara Brach propose d'entreprendre une " acceptation radicale " de nous-mêmes. L'Acceptation radicale, c'est la capacité à parfaitement identifier son ressenti intérieur et à l'embrasser avec bienveillance, qu'il soit positif ou négatif, afin d'améliorer l'image que l'on a de soi. Basée sur sa longue expérience en tant que thérapeute et professeur de méditation, sa méthode alterne questions et méditations guidées pour construire les bases saines d'une estime de soi contagieuse, qui permet de surmonter les obstacles de la vie. Considérée comme un classique aux États- Unis depuis sa parution en 2004, L'Acceptation radicale est le texte clé pour se débarrasser définitivement des pensées négatives et destructrices afin de s'ouvrir de manière plus authentique au monde et à ceux qui nous entourent.

New Media in Black Women’s Autobiography by T. Curtis Summary

Examining novelists, bloggers, and other creators of new media, this study focuses on autobiography by American black women since 1980, including Audre Lorde, Jill Nelson, and Janet Jackson. As Curtis argues, these women used embodiment as a strategy of drawing the audience into visceral identification with them and thus forestalling stereotypes.

Turning the Wheel by Charles Johnson Summary

"Were it not for the Buddhadharma, says Charles Johnson in his preface to Turning the Wheel, "I'm convinced that, as a black American and an artist, I would not have been able to successfully negotiate my last half century of life in this country. Or at least not with a high level of creative productivity." In this collection of provocative and intimate essays, Johnson writes of the profound connection between Buddhism and creativity, and of the role of Eastern philosophy in the quest for a free and thoughtful life. In 1926, W. E. B. Du Bois asked African-Americans what they would most want were the color line miraculously forgotten. In Turning the Wheel, Johnson sets out to explore this question by examining his experiences both as a writer and as a practitioner of Buddhism. He looks at basic Buddhist principles and practices, demonstrating how Buddhism is both the most revolutionary and most civilized of possible human choices. He discusses fundamental Buddhist practices such as the Eightfold Path, Taming the Mind, and Sangha and illuminates their place in the American Civil Rights movement. Johnson moves from spiritual guides to spiritual nourishment: writing. In essays touching on the role of the black intellectual, Uncle Tom's Cabin, and Ralph Ellison, Johnson uses tools of Buddhist thinking to clarify difficult ideas. Powerful and revelatory, these essays confirm that writing and reading, along with Buddhism, are the basic components that make up a thoughtful life.

Radical Dharma by Rev. angel Kyodo williams,Lama Rod Owens,Jasmine Syedullah, Ph.D. Summary

Igniting a long-overdue dialogue about how the legacy of racial injustice and white supremacy plays out in society at large and Buddhist communities in particular, this urgent call to action outlines a new dharma that takes into account the ways that racism and privilege prevent our collective awakening. The authors traveled around the country to spark an open conversation that brings together the Black prophetic tradition and the wisdom of the Dharma. Bridging the world of spirit and activism, they urge a compassionate response to the systemic, state-sanctioned violence and oppression that has persisted against black people since the slave era. With national attention focused on the recent killings of unarmed black citizens and the response of the Black-centered liberation groups such as Black Lives Matter, Radical Dharma demonstrates how social transformation and personal, spiritual liberation must be articulated and inextricably linked. Rev. angel Kyodo williams, Lama Rod Owens, and Jasmine Syedullah represent a new voice in American Buddhism. Offering their own histories and experiences as illustrations of the types of challenges facing dharma practitioners and teachers who are different from those of the past five decades, they ask how teachings that transcend color, class, and caste are hindered by discrimination and the dynamics of power, shame, and ignorance. Their illuminating argument goes beyond a demand for the equality and inclusion of diverse populations to advancing a new dharma that deconstructs rather than amplifies systems of suffering and prepares us to weigh the shortcomings not only of our own minds but also of our communities. They forge a path toward reconciliation and self-liberation that rests on radical honesty, a common ground where we can drop our need for perfection and propriety and speak as souls. In a society where profit rules, people's value is determined by the color of their skin, and many voices—including queer voices—are silenced, Radical Dharma recasts the concepts of engaged spirituality, social transformation, inclusiveness, and healing.

Object Relations, Buddhism, and Relationality in Womanist Practical Theology by Pamela Ayo Yetunde Summary

This book establishes how Buddhism in the Insight Meditation tradition supports “remarkable relational resilience” for women who are of African descent and same-sex loving, yet living in a society that often invalidates women, African-Americans, LGBTQ people, and non-Christians. Pamela Ayo Yetunde explores the psycho-sexual experiences of African-American Buddhist lesbians, and shows that their abilities to be in healthy relationships are made possible through their Buddhist practices and communities, even in the face of invisibilizing forces related to racial, gender, sexuality, and religious discrimination and oppression.

Black Tigress by Ray Johnson Summary

Many believe that there is no more deadly killer in the Indian forest than the Bengal tigress. But of all the predators of the subcontinent, none is more ferocious than the Black Tigress. The women of the Tamil Tigers are indeed deadly, but by far the most dangerous women are the Black Tigresses. Kent Jacobs, an American attorney, is destined to come in contact with a beautiful, but lethal, Black Tigress. Chandi is not only the most dangerous of the Black Tigers; she is also stunningly captivating , making her even more menacing. Her beauty is disarming, her determination unnerving. Her assignment: kill the Indian ambassador. Kents assignment: protect the Indian ambassador. An unstoppable force is about to meet an unmovable object. Ray Johnson takes us into the dangerous world of the Tamil rebellion in Sri Lanka. A Black Tigress has been given an assignment in the United States. Her mission: kill the Indian Ambassador. The Sinhalese Buddhists of the south of Sri Lanka are fighting for dominance. The Hindu Tamils in the north are fighting for survival. Why kill the Indian Ambassador? And why risk killing him in the United States? As in all Ray Johnsons novels, things are not always as they appear. Readers will be embedded with the dangerous characters until the final paragraph. Then the truth will be out.

Women and Buddhist Philosophy by Jin Y. Park Summary

Why and how do women engage with Buddhism and philosophy? The present volume aims to answer these questions by examining the life and philosophy of a Korean Zen Buddhist nun, Kim Iryŏp (1896–1971). The daughter of a pastor, Iryŏp began questioning Christian doctrine as a teenager. In a few years, she became increasingly involved in women’s movements in Korea, speaking against society’s control of female sexuality and demanding sexual freedom and free divorce for women. While in her late twenties, an existential turn in her thinking led Iryŏp to Buddhism; she eventually joined a monastery and went on to become a leading figure in the female monastic community until her death. After taking the tonsure, Iryŏp followed the advice of her teacher and stopped publishing for more than two decades. She returned to the world of letters in her sixties, using her strong, distinctive voice to address fundamental questions on the scope of identity, the meaning of being human, and the value of existence. In her writing, she frequently adopted an autobiographical style that combined her experiences with Buddhist teachings. Through a close analysis of Iryŏp’s story, Buddhist philosophy and practice in connection with East Asian new women’s movements, and continental philosophy, this volume offers a creative interpretation of Buddhism as both a philosophy and a religion actively engaged with lives as they are lived. It presents a fascinating narrative on how women connect with the world—whether through social issues such as gender inequality, a Buddhist worldview, or existential debates on human existence and provides readers with a new way of philosophizing that is transformative and deeply connected with everyday life. Women and Buddhist Philosophy: Engaging Zen Master Kim Iryŏp will be of primary interest to scholars and students of Buddhism, Buddhist and comparative philosophy, and gender and Korean studies.

BLACK SUN - the Mythological Background of National Socialism by Ian Tinny,Thurston Howell III,American Psychopath Association,Rex Curry Summary

BLACK SUN sheds new light on the sources of Nazi ideology by examining its occult roots in the world of myths, symbols, and fantasies. It traces this development from the writings of various mystics in the early 20th century who propagated the mythology of a superior global ideology whose heroes would fight the forces of moral decadence and greed. The book uses rare archival photographs and sources to chronicle how the Nazis used these mythological foundations to develop Nazism as a political religion. While BLACK SUN documents the nationalist mystical beliefs that infused National Socialism, the film also reveals the disturbing perpetuation of these beliefs among certain political groups today, in Germany and worldwide, reflecting an ongoing search for salvation, inspiration and messianic leaders. This eye-popping expose' juxtaposes the polarization in German national history between an obsession with capturing light in all its symbolic uses in order to battle the "darkness" of the Others. The final lesson that Black Sun implies -and what makes it a provocative and interesting book for a number of audiences, whether scholars and students of history, or iconography- is the danger of not knowing one's own history. In this sense, the title signals not only the recurrent theme of evil throughout history, but also the need to shed light upon all its manifestations.

Buddhist and Christian Responses to the Kowtow Problem in China by Eric Reinders Summary

The most common Buddhist practice in Asia is bowing, yet Buddhist and Christian Responses to the Kowtow Problem is the first study of Buddhist obeisance in China. In Confucian ritual, everyone is supposed to kowtow, or bow, to the Chinese emperor. But Buddhists claimed exemption from bowing to any layperson, even to their own parents or the emperor. This tension erupted in an imperial debate in 662. This study first asks how and why Buddhists should bow (to the Buddha, and to monks), and then explores the arguments over their refusing to bow to the emperor. These arguments take us into the core ideas of Buddhism and imperial power: How can one achieve nirvana by bowing? What is a Buddha image? Who is it that bows? Is there any ritual that can exempt a subject of the emperor? What are the limits of the state's power over human bodies? Centuries later, Christians had a new set of problems with bowing in China, to the emperor and to “idols.” Buddhist and Christian Responses to the Kowtow problem compares these cases of refusing to bow, discusses modern theories of obeisance, and finally moves to examine some contemporary analogies such as refusing to salute the American flag. Contributing greatly to the study of the body and power, ritual, religion and material culture, this volume is of interest to scholars and students of religious studies, Buddhism, Chinese history and material culture.

Taming the Ox by Charles R. Johnson Summary

Renowned author and National Book Award winner Dr. Charles Johnson writes that his creative work and Buddhist practice are the two activities in his life that have reinforced each other—and have anchored him. In this wide and varied collection of essays, reviews, and short stories, Johnson offers writings that passionately and compellingly illuminate how politics, race, and spiritual life intersect in our changing culture. Throughout his long and varied creative career, Johnson has been a cartoonist and illustrator, screen- and teleplay writer, novelist, philosopher, short fiction writer, essayist, literary scholar, and professor. His work is often philosophically, politically, and spiritually oriented, and he has deeply explored racial issues in the United States, most notably in his novel Middle Passage, which won the National Book Award for Fiction in 1990. Johnson received a MacArthur Fellowship, or "Genius Grant," in 1998. Taming the Ox is a wonderful reflection of what Johnson has learned during his passage through American literature, the visual arts, and the Buddhadharma.

Fiction Across Borders by Shameem Black Summary

Theorists of Orientalism and postcolonialism argue that novelists betray political and cultural anxieties when characterizing "the Other." Shameem Black takes a different stance. Turning a fresh eye toward several key contemporary novelists, she reveals how "border-crossing" fiction represents socially diverse groups without resorting to stereotype, idealization, or other forms of imaginative constraint. Focusing on the work of J. M. Coetzee, Amitav Ghosh, Jeffrey Eugenides, Ruth Ozeki, Charles Johnson, Gish Jen, and Rupa Bajwa, Black introduces an interpretative lens that captures the ways in which these authors envision an ethics of representing social difference. They not only offer sympathetic portrayals of the lives of others but also detail the processes of imagining social difference. Whether depicting the multilingual worlds of South and Southeast Asia, the exportation of American culture abroad, or the racial tension of postapartheid South Africa, these transcultural representations explore social and political hierarchies in constructive ways. Boldly confronting the orthodoxies of recent literary criticism, Fiction Across Borders builds upon such seminal works as Edward Said's Orientalism and offers a provocative new study of the late twentieth-century novel.
