Buddhadharma : Spring 2009
buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly spring 2 0 09 10 So are you saying that while we wait for everyone to adopt a new worldview, ideas like wind turbine energy, hybrid cars, re- cycling plastic, recycling tires, buying in bulk, using recycled packaging, riding a bike, carpooling, taking public transit, using Energy Star appliances, installing Energy Star windows, and using recycled paper with organic ink for magazine- printing will not make a difference? Pauline van Loo Paris, Kentucky In the excellent “Next-Gen Buddhism” discussion, it was pointed out that “young people today are less interested in particular traditions.” It was also noted that younger Buddhists are establishing “eclectic meditation groups” and that “it may be healthy for Buddhism to evolve haphazardly into new shapes...Every- thing that ever happens in the dharma is an innovation at first.” This is the exact stance of most mem- bers of our sangha, who are primarily in the forty- to sixty-year-old age range. I suspect that many other boomer-and- beyond groups and individuals also see themselves as free-range Buddhists. We are dharma-inspired but not attracted to rituals, robes, chants, prostrations, deity visualizations, lineages, schools of Bud- dhism, etc. We deeply respect American Buddhists who continue to explore and benefit from time-honored, Oriental- based practice. But we’re stimulated by the Buddha’s advice not to go by tradi- tions but to know for yourselves which qualities are skillful, blameless, and fruitful. tara mandala
