Lions Roar : January 2015
South Africa. In Listening to the Heart, Kittisaro and Thanissara recount their fascinating life experiences. They also put Buddhist teachings into the context of our current global situation. A GEEK IN KOREA Discovering Asia’s New Kingdom of Cool By Daniel Tudor Tuttle 2014; 160 pp., $18.95 (paper) If you climb a roof in Seoul at night, you will see a cityscape punctuated with red neon crosses, each marking a Prot- estant church. But while Christianity is currently the most common religion in South Korea, Buddhism is woven into the very fabric of the culture. When it was first introduced in 372 CE, the Korean peninsula was divided into three separate kingdoms. The rulers of two of them adopted Buddhism, yet the Silla kingdom rejected it. Then in 527, a Buddhist court official named Ichadon beseeched the Silla king to make Buddhism the state religion. His request was denied, however, so he attempted to get himself executed by insulting members of the court. Legend has it that when his head was cut off, the blood ran white—just as he’d predicted it would—and this stunned the king into convert- ing to Buddhism. A Geek in Korea tells the sometimes hair-raising story of Buddhism in Korea, but it also chronicles everything from the meteoric rise of “Gangnam Style” to the kick of kimchi. PEACE, BUGS, AND UNDERSTANDING By Gail Silver Plum Blossom Books 2014; 48 pp., $16.95 (cloth) JUST ME AND MY MIND By Kerry Lee MacLean Wisdom Publications 2014; 16 pp., $18.95 (cloth) Lily is having a picnic with her parents and play- ing with her little sister, Ruby. It’s no fun, though. The checkers box is flat because Ruby sat on it; some of the pieces have been replaced with pennies and nickels because Ruby lost the original ones; and now Ruby has messed up the whole game up by lying on top of the board. “Get off,” Lily demands, shoving her sister. “Hey, take it easy,” Dad says, as he scoops Ruby up in his arms. This isn’t fair, Lily thinks, Ruby ruins everything yet she gets all the attention. If only she’d reat activist leaders in his- tory, from Gandhi to Martin Luther King, Jr., all have one thing in common: they are all sacred activists. It is this kind of compassionate action that authors Adam Bucko and Matthew Fox inspire with Occupy Spirituality. The de- but title in the Sacred Activism Series, this book encourages the next generation of activists to tap into the talents and skills they already possess to further a transformative culture for lasting change. The SACRED ACTIVISM SERIES presents leading voices that embody the tenets of Sacred Activism—compassion, service, and sacred consciousness—while addressing the crucial issues of our time and inspiring radical action. www.nabcommunities.com/sacredactivism North Atlantic Books . . . personal, spiritual, and planetary transformation G shambhala sun january 2015 78
