Nominations Now Open for Blogisattva Awards
It’s time to nominate your favorite Buddhist blog for the sort-of-annual Blogisattva Awards.
I would never be so crass as to encourage you to nominate The Jizo Chronicles, but of course I wouldn’t mind if you did. And there are a whole lot of other great blogs out there, deserving of recognition. I’ve listed ones that I like that are in some way related to socially engaged Buddhism in the right sidebar of this blog.
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.
No biggie, but the Elephant Journal is not running the Blogisattva’s. They are only promoting and participating in the People’s Choice Award as it will hopefully draw more attention. The Blogisattva’s is an independent panel of bloggers… just an FYI! 🙂
Thanks so much for the important correction! I’ll fix that in the original post.
