When you come to know it intimately, you will see why it encompasses everything. 31 The Genjo Koan Dogen’s seminal teaching, translated by Robert Aitken and Kazuaki Tanahashi. 34 Two Great Paths Dzogchen and Mahamudra, the Great Perfection and the Great Seal, are powerful meditative systems for revealing the nature of mind, explains Adeu Rinpoche. While their methods may differ, their essence is the same. 42 Waking Up to Patriarchy One helped transform American society, the other is helping to transform the lives of Buddhist nuns. Gloria Steinem and Jetsunma Tenzin Palmo talk candidly about the personal challenges they’ve faced, the progress they’ve seen, and why there’s still more to be done. 48 Breaking Through After twenty-one years of intensive study, Kelsang Wangmo, a German-born Tibetan Buddhist nun, has become the first woman to receive the prestigious geshe degree. Amy Yee reports on her unlikely and courageous journey. 52 Forum: I Vow to Be Political Many Buddhists feel political and social engagement is an integral part of their practice. David Loy, Joan Sutherland, and Mushim Ikeda debate the most skillful strategies to benefit society. 60 My Practice Without Meds After years of treating her depression with medication and therapy, Kiera Van Gelder turned to Buddhist practice to heal. But when her depression and suicidal thoughts returned, she was forced to reevaluate her view of an unmedicated spiritual path. Features
