DharmaNet's Picks of the Month

Voices from the Heart: A Compassionate Call for Responsibility by Eddie Shapiro (Editor), Debbie Shapiro (Editor). Hardcover - 368 pages (September 1998). JP Tarcher. List Price: $23.95. Your Price: $16.77. You Save: $7.18 (30%).
Some of the world's most renowned leaders and visionaries--Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Marianne Williamson, Mikhail Gorbachev, Rachel Naomi Remen, M.D.--offer original essays and ruminations about taking one's spirituality to task. The editors' premise here is singular and straightforward: it is not enough to pursue one's bliss; one must apply the lessons of spiritual wisdom to healing the world. Yet these essays are anything but singular in voice and solutions. Author Stephen Levine, who spent 20 years counseling the terminally ill, vows to address our "confused and confusing world" by embracing "the qualities of the opening heart rather than the rusted machinations of the ever-defensive mind." John Bird, editor in chief of London's Big Issue street magazine for the homeless, writes about his determination to replace despair with a belief that "It's possible; whatever it is, it's possible." Sheila Cassidy, a physician who was tortured in Chile for helping a wounded soldier, writes about her ongoing commitment to helping those in pain. In their introduction, editors Debbie and Eddie Shapiro state that "every change that each individual makes creates a chain reaction that is a benefit to all." One can't help but believe that this expertly edited collection will ignite exactly this mighty of a chain reaction. --Gail Hudson

I Give You My Life: The Autobiography of a Western Buddhist Nun by Ayya Khema. Sherab Chodzin Kohn (Translator). Hardcover - 240 pages 1 Ed edition (December 1998). Shambhala Pubns. List Price: $23.50. Your Price: $16.45. You Save: $7.05 (30%).
Buddhist nun Ayya Khema comes through with a quiet, methodical story, that if written in any other way would seem more hyperbole than biography. At the age of 55, when most people are mulling how many tulip bulbs to plant for next spring, Ayya Khema took Buddhist vows. From then on, she established three monasteries, arranged Buddhist women's conferences, and gave teachings on a lost meditation technique at venues around the world.

In›nner Revolution: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Real Happiness by Robert Thurman. Hardcover - 322 pages (May 1998). Riverhead Books. List Price: $24.95. Your Price: $17.47. You Save: $7.48. (30%).
America's foremost scholar/evangelist of Buddhism brings his manifesto for the future from the classroom to the political arena. In a controversial interpretation of Buddhist and world history, professor Robert Thurman advances a political vision that seeks to bring together the "outer" modernity of the West with the "inner" modernity of the East.

Coming Back to Life: Practices to Reconnect Our Lives, Our World, by Joanna Macy, Molly Young Brown. Paperback - 240 pages (October 1998). New Society Pub. List Price: $16.95. Your Price: $13.56. You Save: $3.39 (20%).
How do we deal with the pain that we feel for the world - pain that prevents us from acting on its behalf? In Coming Back to Life, the authors offer eloquent and compelling insight into the roots of our angst, then point the way forward out of apathy to "the work that reconnects." An inspiring and practical guide, this much sought-after update and expansion of Joanna Macy's Despair and Personal Empowerment in the Nuclear Age will be welcomed throughout the world by all those concernd with peace, spirit, eco-activism and education.

Landscapes of Wonder: Discovering Buddhist Dhamma in the World Around Us by Bhikkhu Nyanasobhano. Paperback - 208 pages (September 1998). Wisdom Publications. List Price: $14.95. Your Price: $11.96. You Save: $2.99 (20%).
Don't let the knotty name of this American monk put you off. Nyanasobhano is one of the most melodious new voices in Western Buddhism to come along in some while. He is Thoreau in robes, and he takes us walking into the woods of present wonder. At bottom, Nyanasobhano teaches us the basics of Buddhism: Theravada Buddhism, the Sri Lankan storehouse of India's ancient tradition. Landscapes of Wonder is a primer on the basics of Buddhism: the Four Noble Truths, the Noble Eightfold Path, karma, meditation, and such. But the lessons are to be discovered in fallen trees, soaring birds, and winter landscapes. "Our pilgrimage need not be long, as the world counts distance, but epic nonetheless: over the barriers of habit, through the forests of doubt, beyond our circumscribed consciousness toward a freedom as yet scarcely imagined." There is still an occasional rawness and creeping pedantry in Nyanasobhano's voice, but his eloquence overshadows them and introduces us to truly wondrous landscapes.

Lessons of the Lotus: Practical Spiritual Teachings of a Traveling Buddhist Monk by Bhante Y. Wimala. Paperback - 288 pages (December 1, 1997). Bantam Books. List Price: $12.95. Your price: $10.36. You save: $2.59 (20%).
An introduction to Buddhism for those looking for daily encounters with spirituality, Lessons Of The Lotus combines the simplicity of Thich Nhat Hanh with the wisdom and humor of Jack Kornfield. Through chapters on karma, transitory death, giving, and relationships, among others, Wimala introduces readers to the practicality and beauty of Buddhism, infusing each topic with his humor and strikingly resonant message of peace.
