Living as a Buddhist Nun
In recent years Buddhist nuns from Asia and the West have met together to become more active in improving their status in the female sangha. At " Life As a Buddhist Nun," the 1996 conference in Dharamsala, His Holiness the Dalai Lama supported this effort of Buddhist nuns to clarify their purpose in taking vows, widening their context, broadening community beyond their own abbeys, and supporting one another on their quest to to achieve greater equality with men in liturgical matters, especially ordination. They received concentrated teachings on the bhikshuni precepts, discussed their lives and Dharma practice, and compared traditions and precepts in different lineages.

It can be hard for those living in the twenty-first century to see how fourteenth-century Buddhist teachings apply to them. When you're trying to figure out which cell phone plan to buy or brooding about something someone wrote about you on Facebook, lines like "While the enemy of your own anger is unsubdued,/Though you conquer external foes, they will only increase" can seem a little obscure.

Working with Anger
Working with Anger
By: Thubten Chodron
Our Price: $14.95
Members Price: $13.46

Anger plagues all of us on a personal, national, and international level. Yet, we see people, such as the Dalai Lama, who have faced circumstances far worse than many of us have faced - including exile, persecution, and the loss of many loved ones - but who do not burn with rage or seek revenge. How do they do it?
Working with Anger presents a variety of Buddhist methods for subduing and preventing anger, not by changing what is happening, but by framing it differently. No matter what our religion, learning to work with our anger is effective for everyone seeking personal happiness as well as world peace.
