Lions Roar : January 2008
FEATURES Mind, Matter, or God? As the so-called new atheists go toe-to-toe with religious literalists, where do Buddhists and other contemplative practitioners stand? Barry Boyce searches for the middle ground with Ken Wilber, Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche, Sam Harris, Reverend Robert Hardies, and others. An Eye for the Sacred Lynn Davis’ contemplative approach to photography captures the power, mys- tery, and sacredness of the world’s ancient monuments. David Swick looks at her personal, spiritual, and artistic journey. Sylvia Boorstein: The Only Choice Is Kindness Steve Silberman talks with Sylvia Boorstein about the challenges of life that helped her become such a beloved teacher—and example—of Buddhist virtues. Living in the Divine Abodes Heaven can be right here on earth, when we live with friendliness, compassion, joy, and equanimity. Sylvia Boorstein tells some surprising stories about how to practice these benevolent states of mind known as the “divine abodes.” Fear and Fearlessness: What the Buddhists Teach So much of our suffering, as individuals and as a society, is caused by fear. In fact, according to Buddhism, it’s at the very root of ego and samsara. Judith Lief, Robert Thurman, Traleg Rinpoche, Sylvia Boorstein, and John Daido Loori, Roshi discuss the vital practice of working with our fears. Prince of the Ascetics Mahanama waited for the brilliant young ascetic named Siddhartha to make a mistake. But when it finally happened, imagines Charles Johnson in this short story, that was the very moment Siddhartha became the Buddha. 64 56 82 48 70 76 64 25 4 SHAMBHALA SUN JANUARY 2008 56
