LOVE FOR IMPERFECT THINGS How to Accept Yourself in a World Striving for Perfection By Haemin Sunim Penguin Books 2018; 272 pp., $24 (cloth) Love for Imperfect Things is the first English translation of a Korean best seller. The author, Haemin Sunim, left his native South Korea to study film in the U.S. and completed degrees at Harvard and Princeton. But he found himself drawn to spirituality and went on to receive formal monastic training in Korea. Sunim now runs a nonprofit in Seoul called the School of Broken Hearts, which provides community and practical Buddhist-based wisdom for people dealing with everyday issues, and has more than a million followers on Twitter. Love for Imperfect Things is a warm, sweet hodgepodge of Haemin Sunim’s observations, anecdotes, and pithy teachings about topics ranging from forgiveness to failure. Yet it’s relationships that are at the heart of this book—our relationship with ourselves, our mothers and fathers, our friends and lovers. Even when we don’t really understand each other, Haemin Sunim asserts, we can always love each other completely. THE LOTUS & THE ROSE A Conversation Between Tibetan Buddhism & Mystical Christianity By Lama Tsomo and Reverend Matthew Fox Namchak Publishing 2018; 560 pp., $18.95 (paper) In The Lotus & The Rose, two fas- cinating friends uncover the par- allels—and differences—of their respective traditions. Lama Tsomo, born in Ohio, is cofounder of the Namchak Foundation, which makes the teachings from the Nyingma tradition of Vajrayana Buddhism available in the West. Matthew Fox is an Episcopal priest and activist who was a Dominican friar for thirty-four years but was expulsed for his unconventional views. Fox, for example, called God “Mother,” used the term “Original Blessing” instead of “Original Sin,” and did not condemn homosexuality. The transcripts that form this book are from both public dialogues and intimate personal conversations, and they retain all the freshness of an exchange unfolding right in front of you. When you purchase The Lotus & The Rose, you also gain access to more than eight hours of video. LION’S ROAR | JANUARY 2019 79
