SHARE YOUR WISDOM How does Buddhism affect your consumer choices? My Zen practice helps me appreciate less than perfect fruit. I typically buy fruit that others won’t, like Suzuki Roshi did. —Jeff Johnson, San Francisco, California When it comes to food and the horror of slaughterhouses, many Buddhists won’t “go there.” But when I started to study Buddhism it became so clear: all beings deserve to be happy and feel safe. —Corinne Beuchet, Manzanita, Oregon Next issue: What Buddhist book has been the most important to you and why? Send your answer and photo to email@example.com. I would rather pay extra for a product that I know is made or grown ethically. Looking for products that are fair trade-certified is a start. There is no joy or satisfaction in saving money on a product created through suffering —Suzy Cashion, Minneapolis, Minnesota In 1984, when I heard Thich Nhat Hanh say, “If the West stopped drinking alcohol by 50 percent we could feed the whole world,” I stopped altogether. I haven’t touched it since and continue to encourage family and friends to limit their alcohol consumption.” —Jerome Freedman, Larkspur, California I’ve switched back to being vegan and try to buy from com- panies that use compassionate labor and sources for their goods. It can be hard, but I make an effort to find com- panies that align themselves with my views. Buying local produce and goods has helped greatly with this process. —Andreja Wilson, Greensburg, Pennsylvania I buy less, try to use what I have more wisely, and support environmental and social-justice causes and small and local businesses. Each dollar I spend supports something, so I try to use discernment and discretion, contributing to the kind of world I would like to live in. —Farah Moolji Nazarali, Vancouver, British Columbia H P D: Teachings on the Eight Worldly Dharmas By Lama Zopa Rinpoche Edited by Gordon McDougall $10 “Buddhism is a house full of treasures— practices for gaining the happiness of future lives, the bliss of liberation and the supreme happiness of enlightenment— but knowing the difference between Dharma and non-Dharma is the key that opens the door to all those treasures.” —Lama Zopa Rinpoche Lama Yeshe Wisdom Archive po box 636, lincoln, ma 01773 firstname.lastname@example.org www.lamayeshe.com 347.683.5177 Khmer Hand Cast Meditating Buddha Statue 17” WWW.BUDDHATREASURES.COM BUDDHA TREASURES HANDCRAFTED BUDDHA STATUES AND SELECT ITEMS FROM SOUTH EAST ASIA BUDDHA-TREASURES-AD:SHAMBALA-AD 4/29/1 SHAMBHALA SUN SEPTEMBER 2015 27 CULTURE • LIFE • PRACTICE
