Lions Roar : September 2016
ZEN MASTER POEMS By Dick Allen Wisdom 2016; 152 pp., $14 (paper) Over his last twenty years of composing poetry, Dick Allen found himself writ- ing in the voice of a Zen master, “one as devoted as I am to traditional Buddhist scripture and to taking a meaningful and somewhat offbeat way through life.” Zen Master Poems is a collection of these one- page compositions that takes us on a jour- ney to contemplate Frisbees, blueberry muffins, and Johnny Cash alongside traditional images associated with Zen, all the while seek- ing glimmers of enlightenment. One poem, “On the Raft,” reads simply “perfectly adrift.” Zen Master Poems features reflection, meditation, mystery, humor, admonition, koans, calm observation, and Buddhist thought for readers and seekers on every path. THE ROHINGYAS Inside Myanmar’s Hidden Genocide By Azeem Ibrahim Hurst & Company 2016; 224 pp., $19.95 (paper) The Rohingya, a Muslim ethnic community in western REVIEWS Myanmar, has been described as “the most persecuted minor- ity in the world” by the United Nations.

Through extensive research and interviews, Ibrahim goes beyond the Southeast Asian migration crisis reported internationally to expose how the Buddhist clergy have been involved in the religious cleans- ing of the country. “The charge of genocide is a serious one to make,” writes Ibrahim. “The current situation in Myanmar fully justifies the use of this word.” GIRLS RISING A Guide to Nurturing a Confident and Soulful Adolescent By Urana Jackson Parallax 2016; 208 pp., $18.95 (paper) “With a near absence of any meaningful initiation into adult- hood in the mainstream culture, alongside a cultural paradigm LION’S ROAR | SEPTEMBER 2016 76
