Lions Roar : May 2016
Sandra Oh: Where is Buddhism going vis-a -vis American society? Where will it make its greatest contribution in this century? Jack Kornfield: It’s a mysterious question, because no one has the answer. The impact is actually in the practices themselves—of compassion, loving- kindness, forgiveness, mindfulness, interdependence. The practices and their scientifically validated benefits are what is changing education, health care, arts, and athletics, etc. What’s really important is not whether someone becomes part of another religion or belief system but how they live. No one knows exactly what form Western Buddhism is going to take, but there will be a new form, just as it became Zen in Japan or Vajrayana in Tibet. And we get to be part of seeing how that unfolds. Trudy Goodman: Here is an example of how Buddhism is changing. At InsightLA, we had, as far as I know, the first ceremony in this country in which the dharma was transmitted through three generations of laywomen. It was a dharma blessing from Sharon Salzberg, who was present as one of my teachers, to me, and then to Christiane Wolf and Beth Sternlieb, who are stu- dents of mine who now teach. That represents a seachange in Buddhism. Walking the Talk Leading Buddhist teachers JACK KORNFIELD and TRUDY GOODMAN join actor SANDRA OH for a wide-ranging and intimate conversation about their lives, the future of Buddhism in America, and their happy relationship as beloveds.
