China: Buddhism As An Image Booster Or Social Stabilizer? by By Breffni O'Rourke, Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, April 12, 2006
Prominent Buddhists from many countries are gathering for the World Buddhist Forum in the Chinese resort of Hangzhou. This is the first international religious conference to be held on the Chinese mainland since the communists came to power in 1949.

Wednesday, April 12, 2006 I find this both humane and comforting especially when collecting alms alone in a Western city. On the sidewalks of the non-Buddhist world, mendicancy has vastly different overtones. There are no formalities or scripts to follow.

Wednesday, March 29, 2006 Even when I can endure and be content with little, I sense a pernicious psychological need for approval, encouragement, and appreciation to be remembered and cared for beyond the physical requisites of life.

Wednesday, March 08, 2006 Steeling myself, I recalled my lifetime vows. As the daughter of the Buddha, I would never forsake them. I would endure hunger, discomfort, danger any obstacle to continue walking in his footsteps.
