The Blogisattva Awards

Posted on

Speaking of elections and voting…

I’m a little behind on all this, but let me tell you about the esteemed Blogisattva Awards. This event was created several years ago by Tom Armstrong, and is carried on by a group of fellow bloggers, led by Nate DeMontigney and Kyle Lovett with Anoki Casey providing the great logo and design. The purpose of the awards is to help grow awareness and recognition of the world of Buddhist bloggers.

If you’d like to nominate The Jizo Chronicles for recognition, you can do so here. Two categories that might be relevant are “” and “Best Engage-the-World” blog, but of course the choice is up to you! And there are lots of other wonderful Buddhist blogs out there (see my blog list in the right sidebar if you need some ideas)… so please do participate and give them the recognition they deserve.

The deadline for nominations is November 1, so you’ve got about a week to go… get out there and stir things up!

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.

  1. I’ve just gone over to the awards site, but there is no award category for:
    “Blog I most look forward to getting a notification-of-post from every day and am most likely to read”.
    Whats up with that?
    I’ll dig around for a different heading, but none of the 13 categories quite encompass the consistent warmth/insight/generosity of what you are doing here, Maia.
    Best wishes,
