Lion's Roar  The Lion’s Roar Foundation is a mission-driven, reader-supported publisher of Buddhist teachings, news, and perspectives.


“The mind-set of samsara is that we can only be happy if we are someone other than our present self. Someday, somewhere, somehow — different. Oh, the things we would do if we were smarter, richer, thinner, if we had more knowledge or better opportunities. This is the clinging to a self that generates dukkha, or pervasive unsatisfactoriness,” writes Pema Khandro Rinpoche in “You’re Ready Enough.”

“Every great Buddhist practitioner ever, in the history of Buddhism, knew their limitations and acted for the benefit of beings anyway. It’s because of their lack of hesitation that we can receive the dharma today.“

This hand-carved, hand-pulled, Moku Hanga woodblock Medicine Buddha, created by artist Faith Stone, is available in the Lion's Roar Foundation Annual Online Auction. “The idea is that once the painting is completed, the deity moves in. The painting no longer belongs to the artist. It is the home of a Buddha,” says Stone of her art. ~

"I found love at Whole Foods Market...
All I wanted was some cashew butter and kombucha tea, but i also had another joyous discovery. This was at the whole foods market in California. We were on the way to the retreat center and I was in a timezone change induced haze, when I found myself lingering at the checkout. There it was- I finally got to see my article in the August edition of Lion's Roar- an issue devoted to *Love* This article meant alot to me- the inspiration for it came from a translation I was doing of Patrul Rinpoche's 'Drama in the Lotus Garden.' Here's a favorite passage from the article...
'This practice goes against our usual self-protective instinct. Yet it turns out that when we contemplate the suffering of others and open our hearts further, it actually gives us more strength. It gives us purpose and endurance. Opening our hearts awakens our intrinsic courage because our compassion and natural heroism are connected.'"
