Leading voices of Buddhism discuss issues and ideas important to Buddhists in the twenty-first century.
Twenty-First-Century Buddhists collects the very best of the round-table discussions recorded in the pages of Buddhadharma magazine for over a decade. These conversations between a who’s who of contemporary Buddhist teachers, ranging over topics from student-teacher relationships to the place of prayer and the leadership roles of women in modern Buddhism, are always lively and insightful. With participants such as Bhante Gunaratana, Shohaku Okumura, Sharon Salzberg, John Tarrant, and Jack Kornfield, discussions equally represent old-school and newly emergent Buddhist traditions. Contributers include: Bhikkhu Bodhi Jack Kornfield Joseph Goldstein David R. Loy Robert Thurman Yongyey Mingyur Rinpoche Anne Carolyn Klein B. Alan Wallace Taigen Dan Leighton Andrew Olendzki Reginald Ray Ringu Tulku and many more.
