Benedict's Dharma (hardcover)

BENEDICT'S DHARMA:
Buddhists Reflect on
the Rule of St. Benedict (hardcover)
Edited by Patrick Henry
Forward by David Steindl-Rast, OSB


Saint Benedict's Rule is a set of guidelines that has governed Christian monastic life since the sixth century. Those who live according to the Rule, which regulates daily life in a monastery, regard it as the bedrock of their lives and feel great affection for its writer, a monk whose humility and extraordinary insight into human nature are legendary. The Rule has fascinated laypeople and monastics alike, including Buddhist monks and nuns who are intrigued by the similarities between their traditions and those of their Christian counterparts.

This book is the fruit of dialogue between Christian and Buddhists that began at the Gethsemani Encounter in 1996. Besides the reflections by four distinguished Buddhists, Norman Fischer, Joseph Goldstein, Judith Simmer-Brown and Ven. Yifa, there is a conclusion by Brother David Steindl-Rast, O.S.B. For the sake of ongoing dialogue the Rule of St. Benedict translated by Abbot Patrick Barry, O.S.B., has been included. The editor is Patrick Henry, Ph.D., Executive Director of the Ecumenical Institute at St. John's Collegeville, Minnesota. Hardcover, 223 pages.
