Pure heart enlightened mind the Zen journal letters of Maura Soshin O'Halloran Summary à 108 E ani Maura a călătorit în Japonia unde a început să studieze și să practice zen sub ghidarea unui maestru zen veritabil A ajuns să fie recunoscută ca maestră zen într un timp neobișnuit de scurt Cartea aceasta este mărturia realizărilor sale. The collected journals and letters of Maura O Halloran make for an invaluable resource of information concerning the rigors of practicing Zen Buddhism as a temple monk What I found most interesting is how human Maura s fellow monks come across from her perspective I m not sure what I was expecting but I never considered that a Buddhist monk can have a grouchy lazy and generally disagreeable personality like Maura s primary antagonist Tetsugen Maura also describes the political infighting and backbiting that can sometimes occur within the temple It just goes to show that people are people no matter what robes they wear I will say my primary complaint about the book is how difficult it is to keep track of the various people who come in and out of her life Considering Maura presumably didn t write her journals with any consideration that others would someday read them she didn t take a lot of time properly introducing each new player in her life So this leads to a lot of names being casually dropped leaving the reading scratching their head and asking Who s that again The primary players in her life are easy enough to keep track of though such as her teacher Go Roshi and the aforementioned Tetsugen It s a shame and a waste that O Halloran s story ends so abruptly and tragically via a traffic accident caused by a drowsy bus driver However Maura s death is somewhat softened by her own eerie premonition that perhaps she had reached the end of her life Either way at least she had the foresight to keep a meticulous enough record of her experience that it could be read by curious students of Zen years later

Pure heart enlightened mind the Zen journal letters of Maura Soshin O'Halloran Summary à 108 Ocumentar și numeroși cititori Această ediție extinsă include materiale noi precum jurnalele și scrisorile sale de dinainte de a ajunge în Japonia romanul ei neterminat și o postfață ce tratează impactul cultural deosebit al cărțiiLa doar 24 d. By whatever standard you would use Maura Soshin O Halloran 1955 1982 was an amazingly intriguing strong gifted woman I d never heard of her until I ran across her name in of all places a Roman Catholic publication which acknowledged her with a short bio of her as a deeply spiritual person I say of all places because though Maura was the eldest of 6 children in a devout Irish Catholic family born in Massachusetts educated in convent schools Trinity College Dublin she is most noted for being an enlightened Zen nunpriest who trained in Japan In fact so deeply was she held in esteem honor by the Buddhist community there that in 1983 the Maura Kannon Statue was dedicated in her honor by her master Tetsugyu Ban at the Kannonji Temple in Iwateken He proclaimed at the dedication She is given the posthumous name of Great Enlightened Lady of the same heart and mind as the Great Teacher Buddhaa real incarnation of Kannon Bosatsu to be loved and respected foreverAt several points in the book Ruth O Halloran Maura s mother now deceased refers to the extraordinary manner in which Soshin who was deeply loved by her family lived her life before after she entered the monastery Tragically her life came to an abrupt end in October 1982 at the age of 27 when she was killed in a bus accident in Thailand as she was on her way back to IrelandThe book is largely in SoshinMaura s own words from her letters journals It becomes immediately apparent to the reader what an insightful skilled writer she was One can only guess what riches she could ve offered to the world both as a writer as a human being One example in her journal of July 11 1981 she writes Of late I feel ridiculously happy No reason Just bursting with joy I remember when I was young deciding to commit suicide at 26 Once one hit 30 one was over the hill so 26 was far enough to live I reckoned that if I hadn t got done by then whatever there was to be done I never would so I might as well end it Now I m 26 and I feel as if I ve lived my life Strange sensation Almost as if I m close to deathEverything seems wonderful Even undesirable painful conditions have a poignant beauty and exaltation So in a sense I feel I have died for myself there is nothing else to strive after nothing to make my life worthwhile or to justifybut now I have maybe 50 or 60 years who knows of time of a life open blank ready to offer I want to live it for other people What else is there to do with itit s as if to give myself is all I can doAt the moment the best I can see to do is to give to people this freedom this blissSo I must go deeper and deeper and work hard no longer for me but for everyone I can helpThus I should also work politically work to make people s surroundings that much tolerable work for a society that fosters spiritual human values A society for people not profits
