Publisher Description:
Do women take a unique approach to spirituality? What are the elements of the Buddhist path, and what particular challenges might a Western woman face in beginning a Buddhist practice? What profound benefits does Buddhist practice offer to contemporary women? Opening the Lotus investigates these questions. Part primer, part personal history, part guide to spiritual practice, this book opens the door to an understanding of Buddhist spirituality, which is engaging more and more Westerners as the millennium approaches. Sandy Boucher, author of a groundbreaking study of women and Buddhism and a longtime Buddhist meditator, explores Buddhism's basic beliefs, its history, its female images of the divine. Through personal anecdotes, lively explanations, and thoughtful discussions, she presents a female perspective on fundamental Buddhist teachings such as compassion, detachment, and enlightenment.
