BUDDHIST JOURNAL SURVEY Revision 18 Dec 87 "We are all the leaves of one tree" PROPHECY OF GURU PADMASAMBHAVA When the iron bird flies in the sky, and horses run on wheels, The Tibetans will like ants be scattered across the face of the world, and the dharma will come to the land of the Red Man. BLACK ELK'S VISION OF GREAT COMMUNITY I was standing on the highest mountain of all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop [mandala] of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw, for I was seeing in the sacred manner the shape of all things in the spirit [sambhogakaya], and the shape of all things as they must live together like one being [dharmakaya]. And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty tree t shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy [sahajajnana]. Dedication Prayer of the First Dalai Lama "May the Sun of Dharma shine brilliantly as in Buddha's time, And may the Buddhist leaders be as one family, That the Doctrine come to greatly flourish and long endure."

Adams Hinsdale IL 60521 USA "The thing to do right now is to create a new society within the shell of the old, with the philosophy of the new which is not a new philosophy but a very old philosophy. A philosophy so old it looks like new." - Peter Maurin -1942 Harmonist: "Do you see this emerging new paradigm and the values and attitudes that come with it as some sort of synthesis, sort of a new perspective on ancient traditions and the present?" Dr. Fritjof Capra: "Yes, absolutely... It comes from the fact that ecological awareness, which is an awareness of the way all things are connected and of the way we are embedded in nature and the cosmos, ultimately religious or spiritual awareness... In terms of spiritual traditions, there's much less interest now as far as the media is concerned, but there are many more practicing Buddhists now than there were in the sixties. You just don't hear about them so much." Interview copyright 1986 by The Harmonist Magazine This survey is dedicated to Dharma Stewardship, the development of Sustainable Buddhist Wisdom Culture in the West and the emergence of World Buddhism in this transitional period. All dharma practitioners jointly share profound responsibility for introducing the Dharma in the West and relieving mass suffering in the traditional Buddhist homelands of Asia. We must be of PRACTICAL help to each other, and the first step communication. That communication occurs on many levels, and between many schools of practice. This is especially true in North America, where there are one thousand fellowships of fifty two schools of thirteen different cultural transmissions (including Native American Buddhism). It is essential for us to realize that a generation of preserving and transplanting the Buddhist transmissions must be followed by another generation of equally important work integrating these efforts. If as H.E. Dezhung Tulku Rinbochay has said, "The future home of Buddhism will be in the West", then we must work together as brothers and sisters to make it a good home. This does not mean confusing the different transmissions, but rather acknowledging IN PRACTICE their common basic and shared intention. To borrow Black Elk's visionary metaphor, each school is a tipi in the sacred hoop of the community: "one hoop out of the many making one circle". What is essential is working from a sense of shared responsibility. This means an expansive activity born of high vision and deep meditation. Putting Great Vision into meditation yields Great Meditation. Putting Great Meditation into action yields Great Action. Padmasambhava said "While my vision is as vast as the sky, my actions are are as refined as flour." In a like manner, Great Community comes from thinking globally and acting locally, from Wisdom joined to Skillful Means. In recent months there have been several breakthroughs towards Great Community, including the Ann Arbor Conference on World Buddhism in North America, the consequent founding of an American Buddhist Congress, and the founding of Sakyadhita, a worldwide nonsectarian fellowship of bhikshunis and upasikas. Of great and lasting importance is the 1987 International Buddhist Directory, which is the first pan-Buddhist resource guide. When published, it will provide summary information on 2600 fellowships and activities in 66 countries. A major and now independent result of my work as North American Survey Coordinator for the 1987 Directory is the Buddhist Journal Survey. This survey details over one hundred English language Buddhist journals worldwide. It is based on journal lists provided by Renee Robinson of Vajrapani Institute and Spring Wind-Buddhist Cultural Forum, among others, but any inaccuracies stem from the editors lack of mindfulness. Numerous journals maintaining a mail address did not respond to this survey. For these, partial entries were constructed where possible. Survey updates are strongly requested, and should include journal title plus 1. Editors name, work address, and phone 2. frequency of publication 3. cost of yearly subscription 4. total circulation 5. availability of back issues 6. type of coverage ie., dharma talks, translations, interviews 7. types of submissions accepted ie., articles / advertisements 8. Buddhist lineage or type of activity represented This survey will evolve into the "Buddhist Communications Survey" with separate appendices containing descriptive paragraphs on: 1. book and audio/visual mail-order catalogs 2. local bookstores and retail outlets 3. educational programs (preschool through university level) 4. textual research and translation societies 5. on-line computer networks Obviously, I am counting on help from Journal Survey readership in developing and maintaining this work-in-progress. Please be sure to note any instance of the last five activities which need an entry in this survey and contact me so that no one's offering is unnecessarily left out of the Survey. The only requirements are (a) FORMAL Buddhist refuge and (b) that the resource or activity be USEFUL to people whose primary language is ENGLISH. Submissions from throughout the world are thankfully received. Please be sure to include a journal issue or catalog along with a summary of your work.
