Lions Roar : July 2017
be reborn as a great bodhisattva for his selfless and compassion- ate act. These were the words I needed to hear. They were a gift I could carry back to his mother. I went back to my seat in the conference and watched His Holiness shift his mental state, as quickly as stepping through an open doorway. His nimbleness of mind and heart was a good example of how the taste of suffering induces empathy, followed by compassion in someone who has trained the mind and heart to use suffering as a medicine to open to greater love and care. His Holiness is a powerful example for all of us today, as we face our imperiled world. His great and tender heart and his boundless wisdom open him to the truth of suffering and freedom from suffering. This is why we love him, and why he continues to inspire us to practice and to serve. ROSHI JOAN HALIFAX is the founder and head teacher of Upaya Institute and Zen Center in Santa Fe. The Spiritual Revolutionary Adam Bucko We are living in a world that is making less and less sense. Black kids are being executed on the streets of our cities by the very people who should be protecting them. Mother Earth is crying as we go on with “business as usual,” refusing to address our damaging addictions to comfort and consumerism. Poverty is on the rise as more and more children are being denied access to opportunities for the life they deserve. The refugee and dis- placement crisis is the biggest we’ve ever seen. Our political systems seem broken while fear, racism, and misogyny are no longer hidden in the shadows. Where do we fit in all of this? What is the correct spiritual response? As we contemplate these questions, we may look to the call for a spiritual revolution so clearly articulated and lived by the Dalai Lama. Time and time again, he has called for a “radical re-orientation away from our habitual preoccupation with self,” and from fundamentalism, self-certainty, and subtle and not- so-subtle violence. His is not a call to a make-believe spirituality of disengage- ment, but to a caring way of sacrificial love and radical compas- sion. Can we hear his call and begin to take it seriously? Can we follow in his footsteps? We have to—because the future of our world depends on it. ADAM BUCKO is a Christian contemplative and the co-author of Occupy Spirituality and The New Monasticism. ♦ PHOTOBYOLIVIERADAM LION’S ROAR | JULY 2017 55
