Lions Roar : March 2019
REVIEWS ECODHARMA Buddhist Teachings for the Ecological Crisis By David R. Loy Wisdom Publications 2019; 232 pp., $17.95 (paper) Two questions are at the heart of Ecodharma: how can Buddhism help us respond to the eco-crisis, and what does this crisis signify for our practice and understanding of the dharma? David Loy begins by presenting an overview of the situation. “Climate change,” he says, “is just the proverbial tip of the iceberg.” There are, in fact, multiple interconnected environmental issues that we need to grapple with, and the root of all of them is our misunderstand- ing of ourselves and the world. In other words, the eco-crisis is a spiritual crisis. Loy then goes on to give a cogent, comprehen- sive analysis of how Buddhism can help. One thing he suggests is practicing in nature, rather than hidden indoors. After all, in nature the interdependence of all living beings is obvious. Loy also takes us through myriad fundamental Buddhist teachings, such as the precepts and the brahmaviharas, and unpacks what they mean in the light of ecology. STILL, IN THE CITY Creating Peace of Mind in the Midst of Urban Chaos Edited by Angela Dews Skyhorse Publishing 2018; 259 pp., $21.99 (cloth) Many of us have the notion that a contemplative environment should be secluded and bucolic, but Still, in the City challenges us to practice deeply in large urban centers—even in the cacophony of rush hour. When practicing in the city, there are both challenges and opportunities, and readers explore how to embrace both. Still, in the City is an anthology of teachings by some of the graduates of the Fourth Community Dharma Leaders (CDL) training of the Insight Meditation tradition, sponsored by the Spirit Rock Meditation Center and taught by Larry Yang, Thanissara, Gina Sharpe, and Eugene Cash. Unlike previous CDL trainings, which had an average of 6 percent people of color participating, CDL4 had 38 percent, and this book reflects that refreshing diversity of voices. Though the book is thoroughly grounded in the buddhadharma, it will be of value not just to Buddhists, but to all those who call their practice mindfulness.
