Dharma, Color, and Culture: New Voices in Western Buddhism
For the first time ever, the words of Western Buddhist practitioners of colour are recognised and gathered together in one groundbreaking anthology. Alice Walker, Maxine Hong Kingston, Charles Johnson, Thich Nhat Hanh and twenty-five other contributors share their unique perspectives on the fundamental Buddhist concepts of suffering and the path to the cessation of suffering. Recognising that attention to the pain of racism is essential, the overarching theme of this book is how the Dharma becomes an effective antidote to suffering and a vehicle for healing and liberation.
