Buddhadharma : Winter 2008
buddhadharma: the practitioner’s quarterly winter 2 0 08 8 Adayinthelifeofamotherisashort course in the complete, three-point teach- ing of the Diamond Sutra: realize no-self, realize no-other, and perform meritorious deeds. Parenthood is the most transfor- mative experience that most of us mor- tals will undertake during our lifetimes, but the transformation does not occur without committed daily practice. So I’m not too concerned about par- ents. That is, until I see news reports like the recent one about the booming job market for nighttime nannies to relieve the inconvenience and drudgery of sleep interruption. Or the one about the popu- larity of Chinese-language tutors to give toddlers a competitive head start on glo- balization. Or all the ways in which we seem to be outsourcing and reinventing parenthood to be more accessible and rel- evant to modern life. It looks like parents can be as deluded about their practice as we Buddhists can be about ours. All that aside, I know I shouldn’t fret about the state of Buddhism. I shouldn’t worry about modern parenthood. I should get under the bed and take care of it myself. As my daughter insists, and as my practice reveals, there is something to be seen there—the truth that completely clears all fear, confusion, and pain. Only when I make a regular practice of turn- ing on the light and taking a look can there be peace of mind. we would liKe to thanK the following people and organizations for their assistance with the Winter issue of Buddhadharma: The Practitioner’s Quarterly: Anamae • Helen Abbott • Bjarte Alvestad Dr. Stephen Addiss • Roko Sherry Chayat Julia Chender • Paul Holland Vivian Kurtz • Tashi Mannox Laura Mazer • Russ Morris Marlborough Gallery, New York Ngyogen Nowak • Walt Opie Wilfredo Pascual • Matthieu Ricard Anne Rochfort • Azael Rodríguez Rubin Museum of Art • Rod Meade Sperry Alex Trisoglio
