Synopsis: Despite the daunting barriers of geography and language that separate them, Buddhism and contemporary feminism have much to say to each other. Buddhist practices such as mindfulness (in which calm centering and keen awareness of change coexist) and compassion (in which the self is recognized as both powerful in itself and interdependently connected with all others) can be important resources for contemporary women, while feminism can expand the traditional horizons of Buddhist concerns to include social, historical, and psychological issues. The image and ritual of the Great Bliss Queen, an important Buddhist figure of enlightenment, form the unifying theme of the book modeling the practices and theory that can assist each of us in being at one with ourselves and fully engaged with others.

From the Back Cover: Despite barriers of language and culture, Buddhism and contemporary feminism have much to say to each other. Both appeared on the Western intellectual scene at about the same time, both focus on self and identity, and both are dedicated to the fruitful interaction of theory and experience in regard to those questions. The ritual of the Great Bliss Queen, an important Buddhist figure of enlightenment, unifies the book, modeling practices that can help us to be both at one with ourselves and open to engagement with others.

"A groundbreaking and important book."--Jan Nattier, Indiana University

"There is an element of personal reflection in Klein's work that makes the book immediately approachable..."--Jose Ignacio Cabezon, UC Santa Barbara

"Thanks to Anne Klein for taking on crucial issues and making superb sense of them."--Sandy Boucher, author of Turning the Wheel: American Women Creating the New Buddhism

Anne Carolyn Klein is professor and chair of Religious Studies at Rice University. She lives in Houston, Texas.

Book Description Snow Lion Publications, U S A. Soft cover. Book Condition: New. 1st Edition. BRAND NEW BOOK. Anne Klein's Meeting the Great Bliss Queen presents us with a new and welcomed approach to the conversation between Buddhism and feminist thought. With 'the self' and 'subjectivity' as its central themes, the work is a lively yet rigorous discussion of Buddhist textual traditions in light of contemporary feminist theory. At the same time there is an element of personal reflection in Klein's work that makes the book immediately approachable, and that contextualizes the scholarly material in a way that is rare in contemporary writing in the field of Buddhist studies. A work of great erudition and sensitivity. 0. Bookseller Inventory # 200278
