Inquiring Minds Want to Know…

Posted on

If you’re a news junkie, you can do no better than bookmarking Rev. Danny Fisher’s Buddhism Beat column on the Shambhala Sun website. Danny filters through all the Buddhist-related news worldwide so that you (and I) don’t have to.

A gander at this week’s issue will get you updated on the news from:

  • Bhutan (the government recently convened a workshop on Gross National Happiness)
  • Burma (Aung San Suu Kyi will meet with three leaders from the National League for Democracy party this week)
  • The Netherlands (the launch of the Dutch Buddhist Broadcast Foundation, “the first independent Buddhist broadcasting foundation in the West to produce and broadcast Buddhist programs within a country’s Public Broadcasting Foundation System.”)

and that’s just a few of the things you’ll learn… Thanks for keeping us updated, Danny!

About Maia

I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s. As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi. I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.
