Lions Roar : September 2019
A S SHAMBHALA PUBLICATIONS celebrates its fiftieth anniversary, co-owner Sara Bercholz quips that when the company got its start, “The interest in spirituality was very much in the air, but there wasn’t a lot of ground.” Maybe it was the psychedelic drugs giving people a glimpse into other real- ities, or maybe it was the Vietnam War shaking up the status quo, but whatever the reason, there was a widespread hunger back in 1969 to learn about Bud- dhism and other Eastern religions. People were looking for answers. Yet in English there were few books on these topics, they were hard to get ahold of, and the books that did exist were of limited scope. As Shambhala Publications’ cofounder Sam Bercholz puts it, “The books were academic, intellectual. They were based on someone’s reading, not on someone’s practice.” FOR FIFTY YEARS, Shambhala Publications has been creating books to help people on their spiritual path. ANDREA MILLER looks at how Shambhala’s books have reflected—and helped shape—Buddhism in the West. Books for Our Journey LION’S ROAR | SEPTEMBER 2019 56
