Lions Roar : May 2012
SHAMBHALA SUN MAY 2012 11 TSOKNYI RINPOCHE (“This Is My Mind, Luminous and Empty,” page 42) teaches stu- dents worldwide about the innermost nature of mind as described and practiced in the Vajrayana Buddhist tradition. Author of Carefree Dignity, Fear- less Simplicity, and his newest book, Open Heart, Open Mind, he’s the spiritual head of two nunneries and one monastery in Nepal, as well as one of the larg- est nunneries in Tibet. Ngesdon Osel Ling monastery in Kath- mandu is his seat in the East. In the West, it’s Yeshe Rangsal in Crest- one, Colorado. DANIEL LADINSKY (“About a Poem,” page 96) is a bestselling author whose books include A Year With Hafiz, The Gift, and Love Poems From God. Ladinsky lived in India for six years, where he worked in a free rural clinic for the poor and was a student of all faiths. The wonder of Hafiz was ingrained in him when a teacher there said, “With great wit and tenderness the words of Hafiz speak for God.” KYO MACLEAR (“Degrading Our Chil- dren,” page 31) engages in various forms of paradoxical human behavior—striving not to strive, ponder- ing the achievement of non-achievement, and excelling in imperfec- tion. Maclear is the author of two chil- dren’s books, Spork and the recently published Virginia Wolf, which is about two sisters: Vir- ginia, who is in a “wolf- ish” mood—growling, howling, and acting very strange—and Vanessa, who discovers a creative way to cheer Virginia up. SHOKEN MICHAEL STONE (“What’s the Music All About?” page 62) is a yoga instructor, Buddhist teacher, psy- chotherapist, and activ- ist. He leads Centre of Gravity in Toronto, a thriving urban com- munity of practi- tioners, and teaches courses to health care professionals that integrate Buddhist teachings and practices with contemporary approaches to clinical work. He’s the author of numerous books on yoga and Buddhism, including Awake in the World. SANDY BOUCHER (“A Complicated Burden,” page 23) has chronicled the par- ticipation of Western women in Buddhism for twenty-five years. Her eight books include Discovering Kwan Yin and her lat- est release, Dancing in the Dharma, the story of pioneer Vipassana teacher Ruth Denison. Boucher leads retreats combining medita- tion and writing and is associate editor of Persimmon Tree, an online magazine of the arts. She was named an Outstanding Woman in Buddhism in 2006.
