Buddhadharma : Winter 2017
commenTary 15 practice in a particular school, and there are excellent books, translations, websites, and journals where you can dive deeper into your own tradition. What is unique about Buddhadharma is that it’s the one place you can find the best of all Buddhist traditions. We always benefit when we access the wisdom of other Buddhist schools. Even though people talk about “one dharma,” we Buddhists can be surprisingly siloed. But we’re just coming at the same problem from different angles. Buddhadharma helps us benefit from other perspectives on the dharma. Broadly speaking, Buddhadharma focuses on three areas: practice, study, and community. We offer profound practice instruction from a full range of wise teachers, both historical and contemporary. You can learn more about the many different Buddhist practices Bud- dhists and go deeper into your own. You may be amazed how a teacher from another tradition helps you see your own practice differently. Of course, practice alone isn’t enough. We need a context and framework. Buddhadharma taps the experts to help you deepen your study of Buddhist philosophy and history. Our expanded review section will keep you informed about the latest developments in Buddhist thought and scholarship. Finally, there is perhaps the juiciest topic: community. We tackle the challenges, questions, and controversies that arise when Buddhists relate to each other in community, including sustainability, ethics, inclusion, safety, affordability, adaptation versus tradition, activism, and much more. This is where the world can see if we’re really living our values as Buddhists. There is one other way the dharma is like a great river—it is always flowing and changing, even as it remains the same river. We face the same great challenge that Buddhists have always faced as the dharma manifests in new cultures and times: under- standing how the unchanging changes to create benefit in new circumstances. Buddhism in North America is now in a fertile moment of generational and cultural change. It is open and exciting. We don’t know how the dharma will flow from here, but we know it needs people committed to deep practice, serious study, and the creation of inspiring, sustainable communities. May Buddhadharma bring together all who are dedicated to this.
