New Books> Yunmen, Hanshan, & the Dalai Lama

I am pleased to announce the release of several new books and a series.

Zen Master Yunmen: His Life and Essential Sayings. 
Translated and edited by Urs App.  
Along with such figures as Mazu, Linji, and Zhaozhou, Master Yunmen is one of the most important figures of Chan Buddhism’s classical period. A pioneer of the spontaneous and elliptical teaching style that later evolved into formal koan practice, Yunmen exerted tremendous influence on the development of Chan, Sŏn, and Zen Buddhisms.

CFP> Workshop: Religious and Cultural Inclusion and Exclusion in Myanmar History

Call for Papers

The Independent Journal of Burmese Scholarship announces a Workshop/Conference on the Theme:

Religious and Cultural Inclusion and Exclusion in Myanmar History

In view of the traumatic political events of the past year, we anticipate that a substantial number of papers will examine Islam and the Rohingya issue. We emphasize, however, that we welcome papers that examine other ethnic and religious groups that fall within this theme.
