Lions Roar : January 2019
#MINDFULPOLITICS While Buddhism has tradition- ally addressed the personal causes of suffering, modern insights into society, nature, and politics oblige us to also address systemic causes of suffering. That’s why we’ve launched a new #MindfulPo- litics section on our website. There you’ll find a wealth of teachings, meditation tech- niques, news, and stories to inspire and inform your jour- ney as a citizen of this world, one who cares for others and for the future. Check it out now on the front page of lionsroar.com. The best of Lion’s Roar The latest Lion’s Roar Special Edition showcases some of our all-time favorite, most potent—and most relevant—articles, teachings, and art from the pages of Lion’s Roar. It’s called Awaken Your Heart & Mind and it’s the ideal keepsake for the many who have been inspired by Lion’s Roar’s 40 years of coverage of Buddhism, culture, medita- tion, and life itself—and for the many more who are discovering the dharma every day. Look for it on newsstands now or order your copy directly at store.lionsroar.com. FROM THE PUBLISHER In late October, the Lion’s Roar board—a group of deeply engaged Buddhist teachers and other leaders— gathered with staff in upstate New York for our annual board retreat. Over two days, we discussed the future of our non-profit organization, plus some of the important issues and opportunities facing Buddhists today. We’re deeply appreciative of the board’s continuing contribution to our mission, and want to express our sincere appreciation for the service and insight of Tim Olmstead, who retired this year after nearly a decade on the board. (Clockwise from left: Board members Trudy Goodman, Chuck Lief (chair), Eric Colombel, James Gimian, Melvin McLeod, Ben Moore, Andy Karr, Mirabai Bush, Gina Sharpe, Roshi Pat Enkyo O’Hara, and Brenda Salgado.) EVENT An historic gathering In October, The Gathering, an historic meeting of Buddhist teachers of black African descent from across traditions, was followed by thirteen teachers in public dialogue about what it means to be a black Buddhist today. Interested in the conversation? It’s all online for you to view—just type “Black & Buddhist in America” into the search engine at lionsroar. com or YouTube. Lion’s Roar was honored to co-host The Gathering with Union Theological Seminary’s Thich Nhat Hanh Program for Engaged Buddhism, with support from the Arthur Vining Davis Foundation, the Hemera Foundation, and the Frederick P. Lenz Foundation. UPCOMING Lion’s Roar 40th anniversary 2019 marks the 40th year of Lion’s Roar and our work to benefit people’s lives and support the flourishing of Buddhism in the modern world. While it’s a natural time to reflect on what’s come before, we feel it’s even more helpful to take this opportunity to consider where Buddhism should go in the next 40 years. So in each 2019 issue of Lion’s Roar magazine, we’ll bring together leading Buddhist voices to share their thoughts on how Buddhism can be most beneficial in the decades to come—from how to be truly inclusive, to new forms of community, to deepening our practice, to how Buddhism can reform itself and engage with the important issues of our time. Our celebration, these reflections, and much more begin with the next issue of Lion’s Roar. LEARNING Deepen your understanding With this issue of Lion’s Roar we’re pleased to begin show- casing some of the in-depth dharma featured in our journal, Buddhadharma: The Practi- tioner’s Quarterly. For fifteen years, committed practitioners have looked to Buddhadharma for teachings, commentary, and discussion of the issues facing Buddhists today. Now we’re offering a Buddhadharma selection in Lion’s Roar for read- ers who want to deepen their understanding of Buddhist prac- tice and philosophy. Enjoy your first peek at Buddhadharma on page 24. Get the best of Buddhist wisdom delivered to your inbox.
