Coming Soon: New Buddhist Journal “Prapañca”

Posted on

Arun, author of the blog Angry Asian Buddhist, sent out this announcement about what looks to be a great new journal, coming out in June 2010. The cover sure is gorgeous! Here’s the info:

Some friends and I are starting up a new Buddhist journal called Prapañca (, a publication aimed at reflecting the diversity and creative energy of the Buddhist community. We’re particularly interested in promoting the work of literary and visual artists. Diversity is important to us, and we want to include and spotlight the work of People of Color and/or female artists—groups often underrepresented in American Buddhist publications.

Submissions don’t need to be by Buddhists or based on explicitly Buddhist material—our issues follow general themes, for example our first issue will be on “imperfection.” Future issues touch on the Four Protections and anatta (“selflessness”). We don’t hold rigid submissions expectations—please feel free to be creative with these topics!

Please let me know if you, your friends & family and other people in your network are interested in having your work displayed in Prapañca. You can visit our submissions page for more information:

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.
