The publishers of the Shambhala Sun are launching a new journal for everyone with a serious interest in Buddhist practice.
Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly is the first in-depth, practice-oriented journal for Buddhists of all traditions. It will feature a wide selection of outstanding Buddhist teachings, as well as stories, discussions and reviews that apply directly to readers' practice and understanding of the dharma. It
While the existing Buddhist publications are doing an excellent job, said editor-in-chief Melvin McLeod, we felt there was need for a publication that would help committed practitioners get deeper into their practice, further their understanding of the dharma, and connect with fellow Buddhists. For my own practice as a Buddhist, Buddhadharma is the kind of journal I want to read.
Buddhadharma isn't slanted toward any one school of Buddhism or style of teaching. An Editorial Advisory Board representing a wide range of Buddhist communities will ensure that Buddhadharma presents the best Buddhist teachings available and reflects the concerns of practitioners everywhere.
In addition to a strong selection of teachings, every issue of Buddhadharma will offer discussions and stories of particular interest to Buddhists, in-depth reviews of new Buddhist books, and news from Buddhist sanghas across North America and abroad.
The Editor of Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly is Tynette Deveaux. Story ideas, comments and community news may be sent to her.
The first issue of Buddhadharma: The Practitioner's Quarterly will be published on August 15.
