Awakening My Heart: Essays, Articles and Interviews on the Buddist Life

English | September 1st, 2019 | ISBN: 1988286883 | 224 Pages | EPUB | 0.66 MB

From Andrea Miller - an editor and staff writer at?Lion's Roar, the leading Buddhist magazine in the English-speaking world - comes a diverse and timeless collection of essays, articles, and interviews. Miller, whose writing is by turns earnest and irreverent, unadorned and lyrical, talks to Buddhist teachers, thinkers, writers, and celebrities about the things that matter most and she frames their wisdom with her own lived experience.

In?Awakening My Heart, we hear Tina Turner on the power of song, Ram Dass on the importance of service, Jane Goodall on the compassion that exists in the natural world, and Robert Jay Lifton on the darkest deeds of humanity - and how to prevent such things from ever happening again. Moreover, Miller - with her gently probing questions - gets to the bottom of the friendship between Zen master Bernie Glassman and Hollywood's Jeff Bridges and she takes a playful look at the difference between Michael Imperioli, the serious Buddhist practitioner, and the unhinged mobster character he played in?The Sopranos.

Insight teacher Gina Sharpe coaches Miller on how to start facing the racism that exists even in the most liberal communities, while Robert Waldinger, a Zen priest and the leader of the world's longest running study of human happiness, teaches her the key to being truly happy. Miller also brings the wisdom of a thirteenth-century Zen text into her very own galley kitchen and takes a look at animals through a quirky dharma lens. Finally, she goes on retreat with two of the world's most beloved contemporary Buddhist teachers, Pema Ch?dr?n and Thich Nhat Hanh, and travels to India to follow in the footsteps of the Buddha himself.
