“The twelve women profiled in Michaela Haas’s book form a circle that radiates in countless ways. Taken as a whole, their lives document both the continuing emergence of Tibetan Buddhism in the West and the concurrent work towards women’s inclusion in arenas of practice and leadership where they have historically been marginalized and excluded. Dakini Power is an inspiring contribution to the ongoing conversation.”—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness

“What a moving and powerful book! With passion and verve, these remarkable women bear witness to the fact that the buddhadharma has put down firm roots in the West. Michaela Haas has done a superb job of presenting their struggles and their realization in a way that makes them an inspiration to men and women alike.”—B. Alan Wallace, author of Boundless Heart and Choosing Reality

“Apart from a few rare hagiographies of ancient Tibetan yoginis, there is a dearth of information about accomplished Buddhist women practitioners. Michaela Haas’s Dakini Power addresses this historical oversight by profiling the lives of twelve dynamic contemporary female pioneers—from Tibet and the West—who, in spite of few role models, have overcome challenging gender-based situations, become internationally respected teachers, and set new standards for actualizing compassion in the twenty-first century. Beautifully written, pertinent to the times, Dakini Power is a study in courage and perseverance and a much-needed contribution to modern Buddhist literature.”—Mikel Dunham, author of Buddha’s Warriors and Caught in Nepal

Dakini Power is a pilgrimage into the exemplary lives of twelve women. The journey throughout the book is like the dakinis themselves, spacious and wise, caressing and sometimes wrathful. Michaela Haas has skillfully amplified these women’s voices, bringing to us their penetrating insights about the spiritual path, as well as their timely considerations on sexuality and sexism. Spiritual biographies are meant to inspire practitioners, and Dakini Power does just that!”—Matteo Pistono, author of In the Shadow of the Buddha

“Despite pronounced male dominance in both Buddhism in general and Tibetan Buddhism, many women find Buddhist teachings liberating and confirming. With Buddhism coming to the West, the situation for women is changing significantly as women become Buddhist teachers and leaders. This book provides vivid portraits of twelve women teachers, some Tibetan and some Western, who are fostering this change. A welcome addition to the literature on women and Buddhism.”—Rita M. Gross, author of Buddhism After Patriarchy and Soaring and Settling

“For centuries, women have been a major contributor to the development and progress of both the mundane and spiritual communities. In fact, they make up fifty percent of the world’s population, yet they receive very little recognition. For a long time, we have only heard the male voice in a choir, it is now time to have the female voice too. Dr. Michaela Haas’s impressive presentation on the struggles and achievements of female practitioners is a wonderful encouragement for anyone facing challenges on the spiritual path, and for the advocates of gender equality.”—The Gyalwang Drukpa

Ich finde das Buch mit seinen sehr unterschiedlichen Biografien sehr lesenswert.
Toll das es westliche und tibetische Frauen gleichermaßen berücksichtigt.

Excellent, Not Only For Those Interested in Tibetan Buddhism 14. April 2013
Von L. Erickson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
While this book is a compilation of 12 profiles of women teachers and authors within Tibetan Buddhism in the West, it is not just for practitioners of Tibetan Buddhism. These 12 women have led fascinating lives by any measurement, and their stories and wisdom will be of interest to anyone interested in female biography, spiritual memoir, Asian culture, or religious history. The author Michaela Haas is a journalist (as well as being a longtime practitioner of Tibetan Buddhism) and does more than tell these women's stories and ask them polite questions about their faith and teachings. She broaches many subjects in her interviews that will resonate for anyone of any faith: What is the relationship between culture, language, and religion? How much/should a tradition adapt when introduced to a new culture? What does it mean to advance women's rights within a spiritual context?

Of course if you are interested in Tibetan Buddhism, and particularly if you are yourself a practitioner, this book offers a goldmine of insight. Many key topics are discussed, including the role of lineage, the nature of the teacher/student relationship, rebirth, and how to reconcile Buddhist beliefs with other faiths. The discussions of these topics aren't pedantic - the women profiled share their personal stories and struggles. They also share the biggest challenges of their lives and their spiritual journeys - struggles getting their families to accept their decisions (especially those who took monastic vows), struggles in their marriages and raising children, struggles with grief, illness, and injury. The Tibetan women profiled share the stories of their escapes (or their families) from Tibet upon the Chinese occupation, and the challenges of resettling in the West. All of them speak of how these life experiences shaped their spiritual path, and how their Buddhist practice shaped their response to them.

As for the women featured, this book is a treasure trove of female Buddhist teachers. Of course there is Pema Chodron, probably the world's best-selling Buddhist woman author, and several others who are well-known (at least in Buddhist circles) - Tenzin Palmo, Tsultrim Allione, Thubten Chodron, Roshi Joan Halifax (actually a Zen teacher now, but with a Tibetan Buddhist background.) I have read books by and about these women before, but still found many new insights from and about them here. However, I really enjoyed the other profiles - the three Tibetan women included, Jestun Khandro Rinpoche, Dagmola Kusho Sakya, and Khandro Tsering Chodron (profiled movingly posthumously), and other Western-born women who I was not personally as familiar with but who I loved learning from and about - Sangye Khandro, Elizabeth Mattis-Namgyel, Chagdud Khadro, and Karma Lekshe Tsomo. This is truly an amazing group of wise women, and I highly recommend this book!

More than power 9. Juni 2013
Von Mary Margaret Funk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I've never met Michaela Haas, but have met many of the Buddhist women she shares in her book, Dakini Power. This book is a "must read" for those of us in the interfaith dialogue. While it presumes some facility with the Tibetan Culture she takes great care to footnote, to provide s a glossary and add a list for further reading. More than power of these individual women is the frank conversation about sex, gender and sexism.

Being a Catholic nun we are now immersed in a tense conversation with the Vatican. I was in Tibet in the 90's and as part of Monastic Interreligious Dialogue visited many of the monasteries cited in this book, but one of my most challenging dialogues was with Geshe's that were appointed by His Holiness the Dalai Lama to study the lineage problem for Tibetan nuns. As much as HHDL wanted to establish women as equals he could not authorize it. So, in reading this book I have a bigger view of how huge is this patriarchy. Sexism covers over many, if not all, current cultures. However long it's going to take, it is time to raise up these realized, enlightened women who recently shared our world stage.

Fascinating life stories! 12. April 2013
Von 1-4peace - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Highly recommend it! I love biographies and have a bit of interest in Buddhism so this was perfect for me. I was curious by the trailer about a London librarian who moves to India and spends ten years in a cave! How does this happen? I found all the stories really interesting. I was also surprised at how substantial the book was. It is such a great read, I couldn't put it down! There were so many surprising things in there - I had no idea that women were not allowed to study some of the teachings the men study. My favorite life story is the one of Dagmola Sakya - the first Tibetan woman ever to immigrate from Tibet to America. What a life! She was raising 5 kids while working a full-time job and still finding time to meditate and build a monastery in Seattle. Am really impressed!

Riveting Stories of Twelve Incredible Life Adventures 17. April 2013
Von B. W. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
If you enjoy well-told stories about women who have embarked upon incredible life adventures, I highly recommend this book. I was initially intrigued by the wildly diverse backstories of the twelve women profiled -- from the young British librarian who sailed to India to meditate in a cave for twelve years to the Malibu surfer who became the head of an international organization of Buddhist women. At a time when so many of us are facing profound challenges and questioning the very essence of our lives, I found this book truly inspiring.

While the author clearly has a deep understanding of Buddhism, she writes with gripping style that engaged me throughout. Whether you are a student of Buddhism or, like me, a layperson who is generally interested in philosophy, world religions, sociology and all of the other subjects that offer windows to the human condition, you'll enjoy this read on many levels.

I hope this is the first in a series by Michaela Haas!

Candidly written 19. Mai 2013
Von Honey Lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
There are 12 super interesting biographical accounts of women who chose Buddhism as their spiritual path. What I liked most is that it presented their spiritual teachers with their strengths as well as their flaws and how the Dakinis chose to deal with this.
