Lions Roar : January 2009
SHAMBHALA SUN JANUARY 2009 11 It’s rare, in my experience, for a magazine that arises from a specific tradition to speak with such eloquence and openness and search- ingness to all of us, and to every corner of the planet and its many interests. Your magazines have warmed, stretched, inspired me in so many ways for so long. May you all continue to offer us kindness, adventure, and light for thirty more years, and then thirty more! PICO IYER Happy birthday! And hearty thanks for being an oasis of calm, conscience, and compassion. DIANE ACKERMAN The Shambhala Sun has been a beacon in the evolution of the buddhadharma during these past thirty years. It has given a clear voice to the various schools of Buddhism, making them accessible to non-Buddhists, at the same time that it has allowed us to com- municate with and appreciate each other. JOHN DAIDO LOORI, ROSHI I do not believe I could continue to see with any clarity were it not for the extraordinary gifts and beauty that every issue of the Sun and Buddhadharma offers. True nourishment for my no-self. MARGARET WHEATLEY The Shambhala Sun has brought the voices of teachers from all Buddhist lineages into the mainstream. Its consistent message is that we are all first and foremost people who are aspiring to live our lives more decently and progressively in society by integrating a spiritual perspective. In this way, we as Buddhists do not become alienated in any way from mainstream society. By being accessible to a wide audience, the Shambhala Sun has done a lot to make this clear. It has introduced the buddhadharma in the West to great effect. The Sun documents all the various steps that have taken place to establish the practice of dharma in the West. This is the true substance of the magazine. As such, the Sun has become a look- ing glass for those curious about the buddhadharma, and for committed Buddhists the Sun has been a bridge between different communities. I congratulate you on this. DZIGAR KONGTRUL RINPOCHE This is one of the few publications in the world that I truly love, and the opportunity to write for it has been a blessing in my life. All of us in the American sangha are tremendously indebted to Shambhala Sun for bridging East and West, for opening our minds and spirits to new ways of seeing and experiencing the world, and for placing the dharma before us in each beautifully designed issue. CHARLES R. JOHNSON The Tibetan Art Calendar makes the perfect gift! These thirteen antique thangka images of mandalas and Tibetan Buddhist dieties, complete with detailed explanations of their historic and spiritual significance, will be a source of inspiration throughout the year.
