Buddhadharma : Fall 2007
mahasangha news buddhadharma| 93 |fall 2007 buddhadharma| 93 |fall 2007 mahasangha news: programs & centers Buddhist cognoscente, passionate political lib- ertarian, and naturalist historian.” ■ The ruBin museum of arT invited filmmaker Martin Scorsese and author Pico Iyer (below) to reminisce about the making of Scorcese’s 1997 film Kundun, which tells the story of the Dalai Lama’s early life, before a sold-out audi- ence in April. The discussion coincided with the Rubin’s hosting of the traveling exhibit The Missing Peace: Artists & the Dalai Lama. Kundun was released the same day as James Cameron’s monster hit, Titanic, which did much better at the box office. ■ After five years as director of LanD of meDicine BuDDha (LMB) in Soquel, California, immi- gration issues forced Sally Barraud to return to her native New Zealand in April. During the search for a new director, operations man- ager Erick Gardon will steer the course for LMB, which also in April assumed the mort- gage payments from its parent organization, the Foundation for the Preservation of the Mahayana Tradition (FPMT). ■ During an annual Earth Day project called Clean Sweep, Zen Buddhists from Lake suPerior ZenDo volunteered to help collect out-of-date pills, pharmaceutical powders, and unwanted nar- cotics to divert them from waterways. When pills or liquid medicines are poured down the sink or flushed down the toilet, they remain diluted in the water supply after treatment and even trace amounts are suspected of causing a range of health problems, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Tens of thousands of pills, as well as narcotics with an estimated street value of half a million dollars, were collected and taken to an EPA- licensed incinerator for disposal. ■ Four years ago, singer Tom Waits, the Dalai Lama, com- poser Philip Glass, sitarist Anoushka Shankar, and the throat-singing Gyoto Tantric Choir performed with the Kronos Quartet and Greg Cohen in a benefit concert called Healing the Divide at Avery Fisher Hall in New York. The live performance was recorded and is now available on Waits’s label, Anti. The artists are donating all proceeds from sales to the TiBeTan heaLTh iniTiaTive, a program that provides health insurance and medical care to impover- ished Tibetan Buddhist monks and nuns living in refugee settlements.
