Lions Roar : September 2012
SHAMBHALA SUN SEPTEMBER 2012 43 Life is stressful. Although some people claim that contemporary life is especially stress- ful, I am skeptical whether that is so. Living beings have always had to struggle for food, for shelter, and for safety. They have always had the stress of finding a mate and repro- ducing. The world is no Garden of Eden. You could say that the question of suf- fering, or stress, and what to do about it is central in Buddhism. This is the question that set the Buddha on his journey at the very beginning, and over the course of its development, the Buddhist teachings have examined the topic at many levels and from many different perspectives. THE MIDDLE WAY OF STRESS By Judy Lief JUDY LIEF is a Buddhist teacher and the editor of the forthcoming Profound Treasury of the Ocean of Dharma, a three- volume series presenting the Hinayana, Mahayana, and Vajrayana Seminary teachings of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche. Author of Making Friends With Death, Lief teaches a contemplative approach to facing death and working with the dying and leads an annual retreat for women touched by cancer entitled Courageous Women, Fearless Living.
