Lions Roar : May 2009
shaMBhaLa sun May 2009 15 I’ve been wrestling with my demons, but now we’re watching television. and we see the possibility of great personal fulfillment in collective success (as long as we have an integral, meaningful part). This engaged, interactive reality serves as a good ground for democracy, healthy self- esteem, and sound Buddhist practice. zeus Yiamouyiannis Oakland, California parenthooD as path I want to thank you for publishing Karen Maezen Miller’s article, “Parents Leave Your Home” (March 2009). I have been studying Buddhism for twenty-some years, and practicing from the heart for about five. A couple of years ago, as my practice intensified, I was feeling a mo- nastic calling and considered dedicating myself full-time to practice. Then I fell in love, got married, and my new wife gave birth to a beautiful boy. I still feel a deep longing to intensify my practice, and Miller’s article shows how that can happen in the context of family and working life. Eric Junker Los Angeles, California GenDer samsara I regret the Sun’s decision to print a reader’s comment expressing his wish to be born in an earthly nirvana “where the women are demure” (March 2009). I doubt the editors would have printed a comment to the effect of “I’m shooting to be reborn in a place where the (fill-in- the-blank ethnic/racial/religious group) knows its place,” and I fail to see a qualita- tive difference. This is an example of the unchallenged rhetoric cycling through our society’s mainstream discourse that reinforces the existing power structure and its imbalances. I could explain to the writer that I dream of being reborn in a place where the average man’s ego re- mains in proportion to his intellect, but as I’m also trying “not to devolve into a lower life form,” I’ll simply remind him that the only societies in which women remain “demure” are those in which their economic or physical well-being would be jeopardized should they not.
