Lions Roar : September 2013
SHAMBHALA SUN SEPTEMBER 2013 8 Contributors VICTOR CHAN (“At Home with the Dalai Lama,” page 30) is grateful to the three Afghan men who kidnapped him in Kabul at gunpoint in 1972, because if it hadn’t been for them he would never have met the Dalai Lama. Chan and His Holiness have coauthored two books, The Wisdom of Forgiveness and The Wisdom of Compassion. In 2005, they co-founded the Dalai Lama Center for Peace and Education in Vancouver, British Columbia. SETH GREENLAND (“Why Is America So Angry?” page 25) is the author of three novels, including The Angry Buddhist, a steamy political satire released in 2012. He was also a writer-producer on the HBO series Big Love and one of the original bloggers for The Huff- ington Post. He lives in Los Angeles with his wife, Susan Kaiser Greenland, the author of The Mindful Child, and two dogs. The dogs are not intended as a substitute for their two children who are away at college. SUSAN J. STABILE (“Where Does God Fit In?” page 73) mis- placed God when she was seventeen. En route to finding him again, she was ordained as a Buddhist nun by the Dalai Lama and did some crazy things like jumping off a moving train, play- ing her accordion for villagers in Inner Mon- golia, and eating fried worms. Stabile is a law professor at the Uni- versity of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota, and the author of Growing in Love and Wisdom: Tibetan Bud- dhist Sources for Chris- tian Meditation and the blog Creo en Dios!

NAOMI SHIHAB NYE (“About a Poem,” page 88) is an award- winning poet, song- writer, and novelist. Raised in an ecumeni- cal household by her Palestinian father and Vedantist-leaning American mother, she studied world reli- gions in college and was most attracted to Zen Buddhism. For the past five years, she has traveled from her home in San Antonio, Texas, to Tassajara Zen Mountain Center in California to conduct a Memorial Day writ- ing workshop called “Words Under the Words,” with Ryoshin Paul Haller. JOHN TARRANT, Roshi (“A Beautiful Wish,” page 40) has strived to develop new ways of teaching Zen koans that can help anyone make beautiful discover- ies, even those who have never meditated before. He has put his koan course online at Zenosaurus.blogspot. com and crowdsources discoveries from working with koans. Director of the Pacific Zen Institute, he is the author of Bring Me the Rhinoceros and Other Zen Koans that Will Save Your Life and The Light Inside the Dark: Zen, Soul, and the Spiritual Life.
