Buddhadharma : Fall 2007
buddhadharma| 95 |fall 2007 mahasangha news mahasangha news righTview QuarTerLy editor Xianyang Carl Jerome calls www. rightviewonline.org an “interactive Buddhist teaching site and online study center.” It offers guidance for those searching for the Buddhist tradition that best suits them, lists of recommended books, teachings, and an archive section offering free downloads of the print magazine’s past issues. The more Internet-savvy practitioner will notice the absence of visuals and audio downloads, but rightviewonline.org should be commended for its willingness to weigh in on topics like abortion and same-sex relationships. Rightview Quarterly and rightviewonline.org are creations of the Mid-America Buddhist Association (MABA), based in Missouri. Dharma seeD has revamped its website, www.dharmaseed.org, in its quest to become fully elec- tronic. Dharmaseed.org boasts over 600 talks from more than 40 teach- ers, including Ajahn Amaro, Sharon Salzberg, Joseph Goldstein, and Sylvia Boorstein. All of the talks, searchable by teacher or title, are presented free for downloading or streaming and can also be ordered in a CD or tape format for a fee. The site is attractive, easy to navi- gate, and presents a brief, personal, written statement by each teacher. Dharmaseed.org will be a popular site for those interested in teachers affiliated with U.S . vipassana and Insight communities. If you follow the work of Jon Kabat- Zinn, Daniel Goleman, and others on the cutting edge of mindfulness and psychotherapy, www.meditation andpsychotherapy.org, a site hosted by the insTiTuTe of meDiTaTion anD PsychoTheraPy (IMP), is worth a visit. The nonprofit organi- zation trains and educates mental health professionals in the integration of mindfulness, meditation, and psychotherapy. IMP’s website includes extensive lists of relevant articles, books, and announcements for seminars and workshops presented by IMP faculty, who include Andrew Olendzki, Ronald Siegel, and Paul fulton. The website for the asian cLas- sics insTiTuTe’s Los angeLes (ACI-LA) study group, www.aci-la. org, is an example of the rich mix of modern digital media and Buddhism. Visitors can download audio teach- ings, podcasts, and video footage. The ACI-LA website even has a unique film-review section, where films in two categories, “implicit dharma” or “explicit dharma,” get a brief overview. They haven’t completely abandoned more traditional forms of teaching, and the site lists the many free classes in meditation and introductory Buddhism that are offered through its center in the Los Angeles area. to December 8. Buddhist Sculp- ture from Xi’an will present more than 60 stone sculptures, gilt bronzes, and clay votive tablets, spanning the fifth to ninth centu- ries, many unearthed in recent archaeological findings and never before seen outside of China. ■ DZigar kongTruL rinPoche, (below) founder of Mangala Shri Bhuti, will show his latest paint- ings this fall in an October exhibit at Tibet House in New York. Dzi- gar Kongtrul values abstract painting as a complement to his meditative discipline. He began painting under the guidance of Yahne Le Toumelin in the mid- 1990s. “My focus is on the pro- cess of creating and connecting to my natural creativity,” Rinpoche said. “The main discipline is to let go.” A new book from Saravasti Publishing called Natural Vitality contains reproductions of these and other paintings. and peace activist kaZ Tana- hashi (above, seated left) and Sensei Joshin Robert Althouse (seated right) are among the con- ference planners. ■ Mark your calendars and invite a date to the one-day conference, “Enlighten- ing Relationships: Psychoanalysis and Buddhism Meeting in Per- son,” which will be held in New York on October 13. The confer- ence is co-sponsored by the Tri- cycLe founDaTion, The NYU Postdoctoral Program in Psycho- therapy and Psychoanalysis, and the New School for Social Research. Panelists will include Lewis Aron, Harvey Aronson, Jessica Benjamin, Muriel Dimen, Adrienne Harris, Anne Klein, Michael Lewis, Barry Magid, Andrew Olendzki, Jeremy Safran, Traleg Rinpoche, and Shinzen Young. ■ A unique exhibit of Buddhist sculptures of buddhas and bodhisattvas entitled I Bow to You traveled through the west- ern United States this summer. Thomas maTsuDa studied under the renowned Japanese sculptor Koukei Eri and then spent many years alone in Japan’s remote mountains, carving wood from the forests and stones from riverbeds. Buddhist scholar Tait- etsu Unno says Matsuda’s heritage gives him a unique perspective, combining “an American upbring- ing, Japanese apprenticeship, and Native American visions.” Mat- suda is a professor of art at Mount Wachusett Community College in Gardner, Massachusetts. ■ In col- laboration with Beilin Museum in Xi’an, China, the china insTi- TuTe gaLLery in New York will host its first exhibit of Chinese Buddhist art from September 20 if you have news Send your information by mail or by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org Dharma on The weB By Scott Armstrong PeTeRCUNNINGHAMCOURTeSYMANGALASHRIBHUTI
