Lions Roar : July 2015
SHARE YOUR WISDOM Someone asks you why you’re a Buddhist. What’s your elevator speech? I live with chronic illness. Whether I am in remission or experiencing a relapse, I remember the words of the Buddha: “Everything arises and passes away. When you see this you are above sorrow. This is the shining way.” Buddhism has shown me that my illness is my greatest teacher. —Fran Henig, Point Pleasant Beach, New Jersey The Buddhist path brings me peace, clarity, and happiness. And it is open to anyone, no matter your religious tradition. —Sarah Vance, Fairfield, Iowa I don’t like to think of myself as Buddhist, as if it’s something I’ve picked up.

It almost never worked—and when it did, it was never enough. The dharma has helped me stop this futile chase. —Lisa Zimmerman, Washington, D.C. “Here, let me get that door for you.

Buddhism revealed to me that most of what was going on was just thinking. —Mike Papas, Portland, Oregon AN EXTRAORDINARY BOOK from thought leader and long- time English translator of His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Thupten Jinpa, PhD “A Fearless Heart can help anyone nurture the compassion that lies within every heart.” — Daniel Goleman, PhD, author of Emotional Intelligence AVAILABLE IN HARDCOVER AND EBOOK A Fearless Heart Print Ad Shaambhala Sun.indd 1 4/16/15 11:31 AM FINE HANDCRAFTED BUDDHIST STATUES Hand Painted, Gold Plated Copper, Green Tara Statue 15” SHAMBHALA SUN JULY 2015 29
