Lions Roar : January 2003
SHAMBHALA SUN JANUARY 2003 97 Burma, Hong Kong and Japan. He was fifty-one at the time, and the publication of The Hero With a Thousand Faces was five years behind him. Certainly Campbell didn’t intend his travel journals for a broad audience; a good part of the narrative was composed in a point- ed shorthand (there are frequent lists of discussion summary points, reminders for lectures, and the like), and bears directly on his busi- ness as a scholar. But other passages also convey his appetite for the sights and sounds of Japan: “Hurray for Tokyo and the Japanese.... This scores supreme for the cities of Asia visited so far. As I hoped: both are here—the past and the present, and in good form.” For Campbell, religion was a subset of mythology, and the exposure to Japanese Buddhism was important to the next leg of his journey as a scholar. Sake and Satori is a glimpse of a supple mind, mid-career. KNEE DEEP IN GRACE: The Extraordinary Life and Teaching of Dipa Ma by Amy Schmidt Present Perfect Books, 2002; 200 pp., $12.00 (paper) This slim volume is an affectionate remem- brance of the woman dubbed “the patron saint of householders.” Though author Amy Schmidt never met Dipa Ma, she cites her as a rare exam- ple of an accomplished female Buddhist teacher who was a mother and householder.

Goenka, the Indian meditation master who just completed his first official North American tour this past summer. Author Marshall Glickman, a meditator for twenty years, might be described as a Vipassana enthusiast who arrived at Goenka’s “whole- body” method after seven years of koan Zen practice and several more investigating the Vipassana style taught at the Insight Meditation Center. Glickman doesn’t claim to be a teacher, and he advises the reader to attend the traditional ten-day retreat led
