Dharma color and culture new voices in western Buddhism
THOUGHT-PROVOKING AND PASSIONATE, Dharma, Color, and Culture provides unique perspective on Buddhism in the West. In this groundbreaking anthology, practitioners of color across the entire spectrum of Buddhist traditions share their perspectives on suffering and the path to the cessation of suffering. In personal and original essays, Jan Willis, Alice Walker, Maxine Hong Kingston, Charles Johnson, Thich Nhat Hanh, and others reveal the connections between spiritual practice and the liberation of all human beings.
These essays by twenty-six Latino, Asian, Asian American, African American, and Native American Buddhist practitioners highlight how Buddhism can be an effective antidote to suffering and a vehicle for liberation. Dharma, Color, and Culture forges a new path in our understanding of the simple truths of Buddhism and their relevance for all of us.
