  • Editors’ Introduction
    • Abstract: One of the issues with which I have struggled in interfaith work and within Buddhist-Christian studies over the years is the common, but often unspoken, practice of engaging the dialogue from a position of recognizing strengths in the other tradition. I am occasionally invited to speak at Mother’s Trust/Mother’s Place, an interfaith community in western Michigan. It is a vibrant intentional community, rooted in an offshoot of the Vivekananda tradition and located about an hour’s drive from Kalamazoo, where I teach. They offer courses on interfaith work and have an active and varied list of speakers throughout the year, ranging from indigenous native traditions of Michigan to Buddhist, Sufi, Hindu—and, of course ...

  • In the Company of Friends: Womanist Readings of Buddhist Poems
    • Abstract: Thank you to the Society for Buddhist-Christian Studies for this gracious invitation. I am glad to know your president, Dr. John Makransky, as a cherished colleague and friend, and our panel is very grateful to present some of our own work from the Buddhist Resources for Womanist Reflection Consultations to you. There are so many beautiful minds in this room who have contributed great models and methods for this kind of interreligious dialogue, and we are glad to join you in what Charles Hallisey calls “the activity of understanding.”1I have the pleasure this morning of providing a frame for our panel conversation today and giving you some context. The Buddhist Resources for Womanist Reflection began in 2009 at ... Read More

  • Freedom on My Mind: Buddhist-Womanist Dialogue
    • Abstract: As a religious ethicist, I am interested in exploring how Buddhist and Womanist texts speak to each other. Prior to being a part of the Womanist-Buddhist consultation that Melanie Harris and Charlie Hallisey facilitated, I have always possessed a personal interest in Buddhism through the black feminist works of bell hooks and Alice Walker. These two black feminists certainly affirm how Buddhism has contributed to their own sense of peace, calm, and purpose, as they engage the social realities of the world. In particular, Alice Walker has written at length about the impact Buddhist practices have had on her personal and scholarly life. Walker speaks about the ways in which Buddhist practices have allowed her to ... Read More

  • Practice in Buddhist-Womanist Thought
    • Abstract: In “This Was Not an Area of Large Plantations” (2002), Alice Walker writes: “This is not a time to live without a practice . . . Whether we reach this inner state of recognized divinity through prayer, meditation, dancing, swimming, walking, feeding the hungry or enriching the impoverished is immaterial. We will be doubly bereft without some form of practice that connects us, in a caring way, to what begins to feel like a dissolving world” (p. 109).Walker, if we read on the surface, seems to be asking us, as Malcolm X put it, to integrate with a sinking ship,1 but, as a theris (a senior one)2 her purposes are more complex than that. Walker is pointing us to the importance of practice for survival in the midst of ... Read More

  • Womanist Approaches to the Therīgātha and the Therīgātha’s Influence
           on Womanism
    • Abstract: This essay discusses Womanist approaches to religion and culture in the United States and the Therīgātha, poems of the first Buddhist nuns (theris) written in ancient India. Is it possible for a body of literature written by ancient Buddhist nuns to contribute to the flourishing of African American women’s lives? What happens when the Therīgātha is infused into the lifeblood of Black women’s everyday life? Conversely, what ensues when Black women uniquely appropriate texts written by ancient theris? What happens to the ancient text’s meaning when it is read through Black women’s eyes, and therefore their history and experience? Using Womanist religious anthropology, I will argue that basic Buddhist ideas found in ... Read More

  • Wombu: An Intellectual Exercise in Womanist and Buddhist Reading
    • Abstract: Reading at the textual intersection of Womanist and Buddhist thought has been much like Frederick Douglass’s attempts at deciphering the metaphysical world of Sandy Jenkins, an enslaved African whose religious practices resided in a non-Christian assemblage of rootwork, conjuring, and charm production. Seeking to make sense of this Africana esoteric world, Douglass remarked in My Bondage and My Freedom (1855) that Sandy “was not only a religious man, . . . he professed to believe in a system for which I have no name.”1 Within my own scholarly nexus of Africana and Womanist studies, I, like Douglass, have over the course of six years grasped for a name for a system of reading the synergistic correspondences in ...

  • Introduction to Liberation Theology and Engaged Buddhism
    • Abstract: As more and more people continue to discover, Buddhism and Christianity are fruitful dialogue partners, not least because while they have different significantly world-views and orientations, their doctrines and practices often seem to be generally complementary, rather than contradictory. So, when these two religions are brought into conversation around a specific issue or challenge, often the result is that fresh light is cast onto an old problem, creating the possibility for creative thinking and new insights. Such is the case in the four articles that appear in this issue of the journal.All four articles take as their theme an encounter between Engaged Buddhism and liberation theology, asking what resources ...

  • Through the Eyes of Auschwitz and the Killing Fields: Mutual Learning
           between Engaged Buddhism and Liberation Theology
    • Abstract: For some years, I have been pondering the differences between Engaged Buddhist and Liberation Christian engagement with social and political issues. A key point in my thinking has been a contrast: liberation theology strongly insists upon social and political justice, whereas Engaged Buddhists in general have little or nothing to say about justice—that is, they do not use justice language.1 I have long wondered whether this constituted a fundamental difference between the two forms of social engagement.Most of the content of the concern for justice is present in Engaged Buddhism as well as in liberation theology: Engaged Buddhism has extensive concern with the poor, as is clear in the Sarvodaya Shramadana movement ...

  • Expanding the Cultivation and Practice of Love and Compassion in our
           Suffering World: Continuing the Dialogue between Liberation Theologians
           and Engaged Buddhists
    • Abstract: There is a rich reservoir of work on the comparison of Christian liberation theology and socially engaged Buddhism.1 As a Christian liberation and feminist theologian, I have learned a lot from these discussions and have been challenged by critiques of how liberation theology may be inadequate: as partial and exclusionary in its option (only) for the poor and as focused heavily on social transformation without equal emphasis on personal transformation. These critiques prompted me to reflect more deeply on these aspects in liberation theology, not just as a response to these dialogues but just as importantly in order to live out of a clearer vision of the approach, intent, and deep spiritual and ethical wells out of ...

  • Confronting the “Sin” out of Love for the “Sinner”: Fierce
           Compassion as a Force for Social Change
    • Abstract: Christian teachings of Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. and Bishop Desmond Tutu call us to embody an unconditional love that would confront others’ “sins,” their destructive ways of thinking and acting, on behalf of the “sinners.” From a Buddhist perspective, to confront those who do harm out of love instead of hatred would necessitate a contemplative discipline that can reveal both the deep worth and humanity of all persons and the destructive tendencies in all of us that hide people’s worth and humanity from our view. In this essay, I will explain and guide a contemplative exercise, adapted from Buddhism, that aims to evoke our capacity to recognize the unconditional worth and potential of persons while unveiling ...

So my primary concern will be what Christians might learn from Buddhists. Also, I’ll be speaking as a so-called progressive Roman Catholic theologian and as a student and practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism. Those ... Read More

  • A Buddhist and Christian on the Way to Carnegie Hall: A Response
    • Abstract: Each of the four insightful, thought-provoking, and well-crafted papers on Engaged Buddhism and Christian liberation theology, by Paul Knitter, Karen Enriquez, Sallie King, and John Makransky, provides its own unique angle on the intimate link between personal spiritual practice and engagement in tasks toward social transformation. One way of offering a response is by summarizing the key arguments of each of the papers and giving due appreciation for and/or critique of the various issues raised. But given the clarity and cogency of the papers themselves, this attempt would only be like “adding feet to a snake,” citing a Japanese proverb (蛇足 dasoku), which means “doing something entirely unnecessary and redundant” ...

  • Clear and Uncreated: The Experience of Inner Light in Gelug-pa Tantrism

Each describes particular meditative methods taught to produce one very ... Read More

  • The Body(sattva) on the Cross: A Comparative Theological Investigation of
           the Theology of the Cross in the Light of Chinese Mahayana Suffering
           Bodhisattvas
    • Abstract: This paper sits within the field of Christian-Buddhist comparative theology and will explore the concept of the crucifixion in relation to Chinese Buddhist images of suffering bodhisattvas. While the bodhisattva is normally portrayed as placid and serene and to have transcended suffering, I will argue that some form of suffering is either implicit or demonstrated within various stories associated within specific figures, focusing especially on Dizang (Kshitigharba) and Guanyin (Avalokiteshvara). The way that these bodhisattvas suffer may be an area for profitable exploration in terms of Christology in comparative or intercultural theology. Given the limits of space the paper does not proceed to develop a new ... Read More

  • Icons, Deities, and the Three Transcendentals: Deification and
           Post-Kantian Holiness in Byzantium and Tibet
    • Abstract: The goal of my essay is to explore the notion of holiness in the Christian tradition and in the Vajrayāna school of Buddhism, using the theology of the three transcendentals developed by Thomas Aquinas (1225–1274) as a bridge between the theology of the icon developed in the Byzantine East and the practice of deity visualization in the Kagyud school of Vajrayāna Buddhism. In the first part of the paper, I will argue that the traditional Christian understanding of visual hagiography as developed by the Byzantine theologian Theodore the Studite (759–826) is grounded in the ontological unity of what the scholastic tradition later called the three transcendentals (verum, bonum, and pulchrum).1 In the second part, I ...

  • Are Buddhism and Christianity Commensurable?: A Debate/Dialogue between

Knitter had relatively recently published the well-received Without the Buddha I Could Not Be a Christian2 and has been a pioneer in religious pluralism over the past three decades. As we will see below, he is also a “mutual belonger,” identifying himself as both Christian and Buddhist. The team then asked Peter Feldmeier to argue the position that they are not ... Read More

  • A Three-Way Method for the Buddhism-Christianity-Science Trialogue
    • Abstract: In this article, I will develop and present a method for modeling the three-way interaction between Buddhism, Christianity, and science.1 To construct this method, I will use comparative theology to model the Buddhist-Christian interaction and Robert John Russell’s Creative Mutual Interaction (CMI) to model the Buddhist and Christian interactions with science. Finally, to ground this method, I will use the Peircian triadic circuit (abduction, deduction, and induction) to model the three interacting traditions, thereby making them structurally commensurable. Because the Peircian circuit will therefore function as a philosophical least common denominator, it will provide the common basis needed to relate the three ... Read More

    • Abstract: Each year the SBCS, as a “Related Scholarly Organization” of the American Academy of Religion, holds its annual meeting concurrently with AAR’s annual meeting. For many years the pattern has been to hold our board meeting on Friday morning and early afternoon; to offer at least two panels, paper sessions, or other type of presentation (sometimes in conjunction with other scholarly organizations); and to hold our annual members meeting following one of these sessions. Usually a session is scheduled for late Friday afternoon, followed by a dinner gathering, often hosted by a local Buddhist or Christian community.This year’s Friday board meeting began with member Ruben Habito’s leading us in a moment of silence for ...

As one who has spent a career crisscrossing the theological and cultural worlds of Japan and North America, this book is the most refreshing, hopeful, globally relevant, and potentially groundbreaking theological proposal I have encountered in years.

           23–27, 2015
    • Abstract: Over a year ago, Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, the Prefect of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, met with Pope Francis, reminding him that the 50th anniversary of Nostra Aetate, the Second Vatican Council’s call to the Catholic Church for interreligious dialogue, was coming in October 2015. The Cardinal came prepared with a number of proposals about how to celebrate the anniversary. The Pope, however, had his own ideas. Francis asked the Cardinal to invite “our friends” who follow other religious paths to come to Rome for a new kind of interreligious meeting, what he called a “dialogue of fraternity.” The first of these new dialogues took place last June. About twenty Buddhists from various US cities ... Read More

It’s easy to imagine that among many other things, contact with beings from another world will have a pro-found effect on how we regard human religious life and traditions. Perhaps for some people at least, there will be a realization that despite differences in language, doctrines, and imageries, we earthlings in our different religious paths are, in a broader sense, really following a common path along which we are fellow-travelers.There is no need to wait for extraterrestrial contact in order to find an example of a global sense of partnership in the religious life.

This interest has also affected Buddhist studies, and these four books, two monographs and two anthologies, are some of the results of this interest. Of these four books, the two monographs are by far more interesting and important. Both of them contain provocative theses and information, especially for those more interested in Buddhisms as living social systems than in purely doctrinal or theological formulations. These four books are also purely books of academic Buddhist studies, showing little interest in constuctive or ... Read More

           Contribution to Comparative Theology by Ernest M. Valea (review)
    • Abstract: This volume, a revised version of the author’s doctoral dissertation submitted at the University of Wales, seeks to bring the theological tradition of Eastern Orthodox Christianity into dialogue with the world of Mahāyāna Buddhism. In the introduction, we are reminded of the glaring absence of Orthodox voices from interreligious dialogue and comparative theology, with only few exceptions, such as John Garvey’s introductory survey Seeds of the Word (2006). The author, a member of the Romanian Orthodox Church, is himself aware of one single academic study in Romanian—the 1993 volume Budism şi Creştinism by Nicolae Achimescu—which explored the relationship between Buddhist meditation and Eastern Christian spirituality ...

The title of the published version correctly suggests a more comparative stance than the doctoral dissertation—“Buddhist Rituals of Obeisance and the Contestation of the Monk’s Body in Medieval China,” which was awarded a PhD by the University of California, Santa Barbara, in 1997—although it is perhaps more accurate to say not only that the book engages with Christian resistance (not merely “responses”) to the bowing rite but that the original study that ...

For several years, this event has been part of the annual LGBTQ pride celebrations of Baltimore. As the only Buddhist member of the planning team, I reached out to nearly two dozen local sanghas, inviting them to participate. I was surprised by the tepid response. Only Soka Gakkai participated actively in the service and sent a contingent with a banner to the Pride Parade. A few representatives from the Shambhala Center and a few from different Zen groups attended the service and/or walked in the parade. I ... Read More

These are, roughly, Catholic liberation theology, embodied in the American Jesuit writer and activist Daniel Berrigan, and engaged Buddhism, embodied by the Vietnamese Zen teacher and writer Thich Nhat Hanh. Strain’s goal places the book not only in the large field of Buddhist-Christian dialogue but also within constructive religious social ethics. This is an ambitious project, and complex, which creates challenges for the work. It is also inspiring and should contribute to opening up space between religious traditions for constructive ethics.The complexity of the task Strain sets for himself ... Read More

May wants to further the cause of what he calls “collaborative theology.” He does so by carefully examining the recently born and ever growing body of Christian-Buddhist interchange and then by showing how this interchange bears the characteristics, especially for Christians, of a collaborative theology. His book is both a review of what has been going on in the Buddhist-Christian conversation over the last fifteen or so years and a signaling of where it is going.May first makes clear what he means by collaborative theology. He does this mainly by marking how it differs from the broadly popular comparative theology. Like the comparativists ... Read More

  • Religious Diversity: What’s the Problem? Buddhist Advice for Flourishing

    • Abstract: Robustly shared constellations of values are crucial to engendering and sustaining the collective action needed to respond effectively to such global predicaments as climate change, persistent hunger, and deepening inequality in a world of unprecedented wealth generation, and they are no less crucial to addressing the frustrations of those for whom immersion in these predicaments is a daily reality. In the face of such needs, many have turned to religious tradition for inspiration. Some have done so through fundamentalist interpretations that support exclusive truth claims and the ideal of values uniformity. Others have insisted, instead, on the merits of values pluralism in both turning to and returning from ... Read More

The two sections of this review essay first examine the books, together and separately, and then assess their contributions in light of the whole and vis-à-vis developments in the broader sphere of scholarship on interreligious dialogue.Catherine Cornille has long established herself at the vanguard of theologians and theoreticians of the interreligious dialogue. Starting with her 1989 PhD thesis on Roman Catholic theology in the Hindu-Indian context at the Catholic University of Leuven1 and continuing with a number of other titles in Dutch, including one on women in world religions,2 Cornille has worked ...
