About The Book

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 over the past twenty years. 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.
