This year a portion of the concert’s proceeds went to Farm Aid and the Karin Berg Fund. ■ And what next from underground rocker lou Reed, a frequent performer at Tibet House benefits? In April he released a new CD called Hudson River Wind Medita- tions from Sounds True, an audio company better known for its dharma recordings by Pema Chödrön and Sharon Salzberg. Reed’s website calls it “electronic meditation music.” ■ thich nhat hanh ( below) arrived in Ho Chi Minh City on February 10 and began a three-month tour of his native Vietnam, his second trip home after nearly 40 years of exile. He again invited up to 150 monks and lay practitioners from his Western sanghas to join him for two- week segments of the trip. He led a trio of 3-day healing cere- monies called binh dang, which means “even-handed” or “egalitarian,” for Vietnam’s South and North war dead. The ceremonies, held in Ho Chi Minh City, Hue, and Hanoi, were open to all faiths, and many attendees were not aware of Thich Nhat Hanh’s wartime position in the Unified Buddhist Church (UBC) of Vietnam, which called for a negotiated end to the conflict. The UBC was outlawed in Viet- nam and refuses to operate there under state supervision. ■ A planned new Insight Medita- tion Center will serve vipassana practitioners north of the 49th parallel. The tRue noRth insight Meditation centeR (TNI) is planned for a 100-acre property near Kingston, Ontario, on Lake Ontario, north of Syracuse, New York. TNI’s guiding teachers are Ajahn Viradhammo, Norman Feldman, Matthew Flickstein, Daryl Lynn Ross, and Molly Swan. Serving as advisors are Gil Fronsdal, Joseph Goldstein, Myokyo Judith McLean, Amy Schmidt, Gina Sharpe, and Bhante Wimala. ■ Some people are apparently taking their inter- est in the dharma into the Internet-based vir- tual world called second liFe, a user-defined “game” where people create “residents” who interact, play, do business, and otherwise com- municate. Users have created a Buddhist shrine and Buddhadharma and Bodhi islands – virtual spiritual communities that Second Lifers can visit. Tenzin Tuque, who manages the Mila- repa Land Trust, a collaborative group that builds Buddhist sites and Himalayan content in Second Life, says they are exploring “the 21st-century convergence of virtual, real, and dharmic worlds.” ■ Filmmaker RicK Ray (be- low, right) is traveling the U.S. with his award-winning, feature-length documentary 10 Questions for the Dalai Lama. The docu- mentary is centered on one 45-minute inter- view Ray had with the Dalai Lama and opens with Ray’s heartfelt contemplation of the ques- tions he should ask, given his limited time.
