Grassroots Zen
Perle Besserman, Manfred Steger

Tuttle Publishing, 2001

Many Zen Buddhist practitioners have come to question some of Japanese Zen's less democratic aspects-from the strict, male-dominated hierarchies to the racial overtones. At the same time, modern American Buddhists often find it difficult to integrate zazen (seated Zen meditation) with lives of family, work, and social engagement. This book offers a fascinating guide to overcoming both these dilemmas. A study of how one Zen group returned to an ...

Rethinking Globalism (Globalization)

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers, 2003
