Buddhadharma : Spring 2006
spring 2006| 8 |buddhadharma I AM A STUDENT of the late Zen Mas- ter Seung Sahn (and a dharma teacher). I find your magazine to be a huge bless- ing in my life. I enjoy hearing news from other sanghas and, also, news about our school. It is so helpful to feel connected to the greater sangha of all Buddhists. Thank you so much. Joyce Haydock Byfield, Mass. THANK YOU very much for publishing the article by Venerable U Silananda in the Winter 2005 issue of your magazine. After the death of my teacher, it was a very pleasant surprise to see his article published. I have had a subscription to Buddha- darma since its inception and have been hoping since then to see a Buddhist mag- azine that would include all the tradi- tions on a fair basis, but unfortunately this has not been the case. Once again, you dedicate much more space to Zen and Tibetan Buddhism. There are very few or only very brief articles dedicated to the Theravada tradition, all of which are written about elementary teachings, as if that alone is what we practice. In addition, it was disappointing to see the amount of space dedicated to the death of Venerable U Silananda in your MahaSangha News section. How is it possible that you gave more space and importance to the news of the new lay teachers at IMS, or to a rock artist, than to a famous Burmese monk and scholar, who was a direct disciple of the great Mahasi Sayadaw? Shame on you. I believe that you lose perspective by giving more importance to the lay community than to the Sangha. If we continue like this, what will happen to the Sangha fifty years from now? I therefore have one request: Please, broaden your horizons, investigate the Theravada tradition a little more and publish articles about the great Thera- vada teachers, of which there are plenty.
