Buddhadharma : Winter 2009
13 winter 2 00 9 buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly suggestion that he’s found ‘the right’ way to read texts...” No such suggestion, however, was made. On the contrary, I went to great lengths to show how there are at least two opposing ways (tradi- tional and recent) to read Buddhist texts, and that both kinds of reading (indeed, sometimes a third kind) have their strong merits. The book tries to be fair to all sorts of reading, at no point claiming that any one kind of reading can be “the right” way of reading, even with “the right” in quotes. Dr. Ralph Flores Thammasat University, Bangkok Omission In the fall 2009 issue we did not credit Carole Leslie, whose art (above) accom- panied the article “Trusting the Three Treasures” by Geoffrey Shugen Arnold.
