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

3 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A bold and provocative work from the late preeminent feminist scholar, which challenges men and women alike to free themselves from attachment to gender. At the heart of Buddhism is the notion of egolessness-"forgetting the self"-as the path to awakening. In fact, attachment to views of any kind only leads to more suffering for ourselves and others. And what has a greater hold on people's imaginations or limits them more, asks Rita Gross, than ideas about biological sex and what she calls "the prison of gender roles"' Yet if clinging to gender identity does, indeed, create obstacles for us, why does the prison of gender roles remain so inescapable' Gross uses the lenses of Buddhist philosophy to deconstruct the powerful concept of gender and its impact on our lives. In revealing the inadequacies involved in clinging to gender identity, she illuminates the suffering that results from clinging to any kind of identity at all
