Canadian Buddhism, eh?

Buddhism in Canada Sumeru Books Women

Canadian Buddhism, eh? Well, that's an interesting topic for contemplation.

Here's a review of Lotus Petals in the Snow: Voices of Canadian Buddhist Women that just came out from Buddhistdoor: https://www.buddhistdoor.net/features/north-of-the-49th-parallel-a-review-of-lotus-petals-in-the-snow

As the reviewer, Caitlyn Dwyer, notes...there is a wide variety of topics and styles in the anthology, and no particular ideological agenda.

"The volume as a whole feels like a Canadian conversation, with women across the Buddhist spectrum reaching out to peers, offering wisdom, pooling experiences, creating a baseline of storytelling and teaching that can be used to build community."

The one thing Dwyer forgot to mention is that everyone involved in the book has donated their effort. All profits from sales of the book go to the Buddhist Compassion Tzu Chi Society charitable organization.
