Lions Roar : July 2018
NO FEAR, NO DEATH The Transformative Power of Compassion By Barry Kerzin White Cloud Press 2018; 128 pp., $14.95 (paper) When Barry Kerzin was eleven years old, he developed an abscess in his brain that sent him into a coma, nearly killing him. In his twenties, he lost his mother to ovarian can- cer and then, in his thirties, he lost his wife to the same disease. These tragedies spurred Kerzin to seek understanding and meaning in his life, and in 2007—after years of serious practice—he ordained as a Buddhist monk. But he isn’t just a monk. Kerzin is also a Western-trained physician who has spent decades in India providing free medical care to the poor as well to high lamas, including the Dalai Lama. In No Fear, No Death, Kerzin offers teachings on meditation, death and dying, working with emotions, and the interface between medical science and ethics. In the end, he brings together the disparate threads of his book with a chapter focused on compassion, morality, empathy, and an impassioned urging to never give up. REVIEWS MINDFUL OF RACE Transforming Racism from the Inside Out By Ruth King Sounds True 2018; 256 pp., $17.95 (paper) Buddhism teaches that there are two realities: ultimate and rela- tive. Ultimately, there’s no race, no racism, and no suffering around racism, but relatively, people are suffering because of racism. Both of these realities are true. For those of us willing to do the hard work of identifying our misperceptions about race and taking wise action, Mindful of Race will be an invaluable map. Part one looks at the social, historical, and cultural conditioning that influences the conscious and unconscious narrative we hold about race. It examines our interdependence as human beings and the impact of our perceptions and actions. Part two delves into how meditation enables us to stay present to the anger, fear, and guilt that arise due to racial distress and, ultimately, shows us how to cultivate an inner freedom. Finally, part three turns our attention outward, to ways we can help create a more caring culture.
