    INNOVATIVE BUDDHIST WOMEN; Swimming Against the Stream INNOVATIVE BUDDHIST WOMEN; Swimming Against the Stream
    by Karma Lekshe Tsomo

    This book combines the voices of scholars and practitioners in documenting and analyzing Buddhist women's history. It addresses many gaps in the documentation of Buddhist women's experience. The 26 articles - written by a range of Asian, Asian American, and western Buddhists '- document the lives of women who, individually or collectively, have set in motion changes within Buddhist societies.

  • MEETING FAITH, The Forest Journals of a Black Buddhist Nun MEETING FAITH, The Forest Journals of a Black Buddhist Nun
    by Faith Adiele

    Reluctantly leaving behind Pop Tarts and pop culture to battle flying rats, hissing cobras, forest fires, and decomposing corpses, Faith Adiele shows readers in this personal narrative, with accompanying journal entries, that the path to faith is full of conflicts for even the most devout. Residing in a forest temple, she endured nineteen-hour daily meditations, living on a single daily meal, and days without speaking. Internally Adiele battled against loneliness, fear, hunger, sexual desire, resistance to the Buddhist worldview, and her own rebellious Western ego.

    Buddhist Teachers in America
    Meeting with Remarkable Women celebrates the flowering of women in American Buddhism. Lenore Friedman profiles seventeen distinguished female teachers who have taught in the United States. The women she writes about vary in background, personality, and form of teaching, but together they represent the growing influence of women in American Buddhism - a development that will surely affect Buddhism in the West for years to come.

  • POWER OF DENIAL: Buddhism, Purity, and Gender POWER OF DENIAL: Buddhism, Purity, and Gender
    by Bernard Faure

    Innumerable studies have appeared in recent decades about practically every aspect of women's lives in Western societies. The few such works on Buddhism have been quite limited in scope. In The Power of Denial, Bernard Faure takes an important step toward redressing this situation by boldly asking: does Buddhism offer women liberation or limitation? Continuing the innovative exploration of sexuality in Buddhism he began in The Red Thread, here he moves from his earlier focus on male monastic sexuality to Buddhist conceptions of women and constructions of gender. Faure argues that Buddhism is neither as sexist nor as egalitarian as is usually thought. Above all, he asserts, the study of Buddhism through the gender lens leads us to question what we uncritically call Buddhism, in the singular.

  • WEAVERS OF WISDOM: Women Mystics WEAVERS OF WISDOM: Women Mystics
    by Anne Bancroft

    Traditionally most gurus, philosophers, and religious leaders have been men.

  • WOMAN AWAKE: Women Practicing Buddhism WOMAN AWAKE: Women Practicing Buddhism
    by Christina Feldman

    Traditionally women are socialized to embrace values based on conformity, passivity, and surrender of the self, which can eventually contribute to feelings of low self-worth and powerlessness. Using the central tenets and practices of Buddhism, Woman Awake offers readers an opportunity to break out of negative belief systems and move toward increased self-acceptance, strength, and vitality. Through a thoughtful selection of exercises and reflections, readers are guided to expand their awareness of life and its connectedness to all things, as well as their own dignity and place within the universe. For those women new to Buddhist meditation, Christina Feldman offers sensitive and valuable guidelines on breathing and relaxation, using an approach that encourages readers to overcome their social conditioning and appreciate their own qualities in new and significant ways.
