Buddhadharma : Summer 2006
buddhadharma| 95 |summer 2006 will hold its semi-annual month- long monastic retreat for youth aged 17 to 25. Recognizing that in many Buddhist countries a period of monasticism is a rite of passage, the monthlong dathün allows young people to take tem- porary ordination (above). ■ Young dharma students between 18 and 25 are invited to apply for the first KuMara internshiP PrograM this summer at Rangjung Yeshe Gomde retreat center near Leggett, California, where they will have the chance to practice and study intensively in various Buddhist disciplines. Marcia Schmidt of the Chokling Tersar Foundation, which sup- ports the 14-week program, says internship is a way to support youth who are interested in Bud- dhism but may not have the finan- cial means to make a long-term commitment to practice and study. Interns will contribute to the physical maintenance of Rangjung Yeshe Gomde and are asked to donate between $500 and $1,000 to the program. ■ Also on the youth front, the DharMa realM BuDDhist youth (DRBY) association gath- ered young people interested in Buddhism for their 8th annual conference at City of Ten Thou- sand Buddhas in Talmage, Cali- fornia, in March. Organizers offer the three-day event so that young people can “gain an understand- ing of Buddhism and develop fresh perspectives on modern issues.”■ visioning tiBet, a 2005 documentary about an oph- thalmologist’s humanitarian efforts in Tibet, got a special Tibet House-sponsored showing on April 25 in New York, which was followed by a panel discussion with the film’s director, Isaac Solo- taroff; the film’s subject, Dr. Marc Lieberman (below, right); and Dr. Robert Thurman. Visioning Tibet focuses on two Tibetans who make an arduous trek to a remote clinic to have their vision restored by Tibetan doctors, who are guided by Dr. Lieberman. Since 1995, Lieberman has lead bian- nual one-month trips to Tibet to run clinics that provide basic eye care and even cataract operations. The clinics have restored sight to 3,000 Tibetans over the past ten years. john Bullitt, who developed and manages the Access to Insight web- site, a formidable library of online material from the Theravada tradi- tion, has developed a new reposi- tory of exclusively aural material. At www.suttareadings.net, you can hear Sharon Salzberg, Bhikkhu Bodhi, Thanissaro Bhikkhu, Joseph Goldstein, and other Theravada teachers reading aloud from the Pali canon. Although they’re reading from previously published English translations of the Pali canon, they have license to omit parts of the translations, or to change words in order to enhance the aural experi- ence. You can stream audio from the site, or download files to listen to them later, all for free. the Zen site, www.thezensite. com, is an in-depth, noncommercial website that is part of the Zen Bud- dhism Virtual Library, an extensive online resource for Zen study. This text-intensive site is divided into three sections – essays, teachings, and book reviews – which are each divided into subsections. The teach- ings section is replete with talks and commentaries by Western Zen teachers, as well as translations of source texts. The essays and book review sections include contributions from a number of well-known scholars, as well as ordinary practitioners. People with a background in Zen will have an easier time navigating the site. The jogye (chogye) orDer, Korea’s largest Buddhist school, has a new English language web- site: www.koreanbuddhism.net. The site has three main purposes: (1) education, (2) sutra translation, and (3) propagation. Visitors will find information on the history and method of ganhwa seon, the order’s distinct style of practice, as well as a list of Seon (Korean Zen) temples around the world. There are also community news items and an online forum that allows visitors to ask questions and to take part in discus- sions. At its launch, there were a few bugs to be ironed out (spelling mis- takes sprinkled throughout the site), but the site gives a comprehensive overview of the tradition. laMa yeshe WisDoM archive’s website, www.lamayeshe.com, is an online gateway to an exten- sive library of teachings from the Gelukpa school of Tibetan Bud- dhism. Founded in 1996, the LYWA’s central goal is to preserve and distribute the teachings of Lama Thubten Yeshe, who died in 1984, and Lama Zopa Rinpoche, the spiritual director of the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition. From a collection that was initiated with cassette recordings made at India’s Kopan monastery in 1971, the LYWA has digitized more than 7,000 talks and transcribed more than 50,000 pages of material. You can read teachings online, listen to them (podcasts are a recent addition to the available formats), and even order a printed copy of a book – all for free.
