The fourth annual Buddhist Women’s Confer- ence is set for March 14 in Chicago. The title of this year’s conference, organized by the Buddhist Council of the Midwest, is “Healing Buddhism.” Sensei Ellen Birx (author of Healing Zen: Buddhist Wisdom on Compassion, Caring and Caregiving) will deliver a keynote on the role the dharma plays in physical and spiritual healing in women’s lives. The winner of the Women in In November, Dzongsar Khyentse rinpoche was the first guest in a series of salons hosted by the shambhala sun Foundation, publisher of Buddhadharma and the Shambhala Sun. The discussion between Dzongsar Rinpoche, direc- tor of The Cup and Travellers and Magicians, and Shambhala Sun editor-in- chief Melvin McLeod touched on the dharma, Dzongsar Rinpoche’s life, and his films. Proceeds from the evening went to the Shambhala Sun Foundation and Lotus Outreach, a nonprofit that supports the education, health, and safety of vulnerable women and children in the developing world. Engaged Buddhism Award will also be announced at the conference. The second World Buddhist forum will be held in Taipei, Taiwan, from March 28 to April 1. Monks and scholars from around the world will be invited to discuss “how Buddhism can contribute to the building of a harmonious world.” The event is jointly organized by the Buddhist Association of China, Buddha’s Light International Association, the Hong Kong Buddhist Association, and the China Religious Culture Communica- tion Association. The first global Buddhist forum was held in Hangzhou City in east China in April 2006. The Barre Center for Buddhist Studies completed an addition to its 250-year-old farmhouse building at the end of its summer season. The enlarged library can now accommodate the center’s 6,000-title collection and has room to grow. A stone stupa holding a well-traveled relic of the Buddha’s disciple Sariputra was built adjacent to the library addition. The relic, excavated by the British archeologist Alexander Cun- ningham in the 19th century, originates in India and was housed for 50 years in the Tibetan translators and patrons posed for a group photo during an historic conference in Boulder, Colorado, in September. More than 140 people attended the three-day gathering, which was hosted by the Light of Berotsana Translation group. One outcome was the formation of a transla- tors’ guild, which will provide support for both senior and newer translators and, through a new planned website of online resources, will foster commu- nication and connections between sanghas, practitioners, and translators. ➤ ©2008MARVINROSS©MARVINMOORE2008
