Buddhadharma : Winter 2009
buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly winter 2 0 09 2 Cover photograph by Duc Truong Features 30 The Symbol and the Symbolized A teaching on the deep meaning of art by the late John Daido Loori, Roshi, the pioneering American Zen teacher who died on October 9 at age 78. 32 Dharma Brother Daido Bernie Glassman recalls his longtime friendship with John Daido Loori. 35 Till We Meet Again Robert Thurman pays tribute to Daido Loori and his legacy in American Buddhism. 36 The Art of Awareness Dzigar Kongtrul Rinpoche says art can be a transformative practice when you get ego out of the way and allow the art to reflect a natural, uncontrived awareness. 42 Becoming Truly Alive We live a kind of artificial life, says Thich Nhat Hanh, lost in plans, worries, and anger. Our practice is to wake up and live each moment fully, allowing this moment to be the most wonderful experience of our life. 50 Forum: Toughing It Out Representatives from four major Buddhist centers—Spirit Rock, San Francisco Zen Center, Insight Meditation Society, and Shambhala Mountain Center—discuss the challenges of the current economy and the strategies they’re adopting to deal with it. 60 The Taste of Liberation The jhanas, explains Bhante Henepola Gunaratana, are powerful mental states offering practitioners a window onto the experience of enlightenment. 68 Gautama vs the Buddha If you’re looking for relief from suffering, argues Glenn Wallis, you won’t find it in some mythical figure called the Buddha but rather in the teachings of Siddhartha Gautama, an ordinary person like us, who became a great spiritual teacher.
