Soaring and settling : Buddhist perspectives on contemporary social and religious issues by Rita M Gross( Book )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 1,277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a practicing Buddhist for over twenty years, Rita Gross has been concerned with how Eastern wisdom traditions transform our lives and are themselves transformed by contact with the wisdom of the West. In her new book, Gross clears with autobiographical and methodological issues related to being a feminist Buddhist scholar-practitioner in North America. Next, she considers major "lifestyle" or social issues, arranged to proceed through the life cycle from conception to death and grieving. Here are such matters as population control, work and family, environmental ethics, and a personal approach to finitude and death. Finally, she turns to properly theological questions, such as immanence and transcendence in women's religious experience and expression, the use of goddess images in Buddhism, and several fascinating practices from Gross's own Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhist tradition

Religious feminism and the future of the planet : a Christian-Buddhist conversation by Rita M Gross( Book )

13 editions published between 2001 and 2018 in English and held by 502 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Rita Gross and Rosemary Radford Ruether have long been known for their feminist contributions to Buddhism and Christianity, respectively. In this book, they talk candidly about what these traditions mean to them in both their liberating as well as problematic aspects. Throughout the book, their life stories provide the rich soil, perhaps even the rationale, for their theological and spiritual development. Despite the marked differences in their life histories and their respective religious faiths, Gross and Radford Ruether achieve surprising unanimity on the paramount issue: what engaged Buddhism and enlightened Christianity can offer in the struggle to create a new future for the planet."--Bloomsbury Publishing

Buddhism beyond gender : liberation from attachment to identity by Rita M Gross( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 91 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Zen teachers are fond of saying things like don't make man, don't make woman. Other Buddhist teachers may not use the same Zen-like saying, but they also generally teach that gender, like anything else, is essentially empty and not to be clung to. That's fine and good, but how does it relate to actual oppression we experience based on gender? It's complicated, of course. This book is an examination of those complications as they relate to the lives of Buddhist practitioners, beginning with gender--then moving on to the other, inevitable, manifestations of identity. Rita Gross outlines the issues of gender and identity as they relate to Buddhism and discusses the evolution of these issues throughout the history of Buddhism. Then she delves into these difficult issues as they occur today. Finally, in revealing all the inadequacies involved in clinging to gender identity, she illuminates the suffering that results from clinging to any kind of identity at all." --Publisher description
