2013 Nautilus Book Award — Gold Medal in Religion/Spirituality — Eastern Faces of Compassion introduces us to enlightened beings, the bodhisattvas of Buddhist lore. They're not otherworldly gods with superhuman qualities but shining examples of our own highest potential. Archetypes of wisdom and compassion, the bodhisattvas of Buddhism are powerful and compelling images of awakening. Scholar and Zen teacher Taigen Dan Leighton engagingly explores the imagery and lore of the seven most important of these archetypal figures, bringing them alive as psychological and spiritual wellsprings. Emphasizing the universality of spiritual ideas, Leighton finds aspects of bodhisattvas expressed in a variety of familiar modern personages - from Muhammad Ali to Mahatma Gandhi, from Bob Dylan to Henry Thoreau, and from Gertrude Stein to Mother Teresa. This edition contains a revised and expanded introduction that frames the book as a exciting and broad-scoped view of Mahayana Buddhism. It's updated throughout to make it of more use to scholars and a perfect companion to survey courses of world religions or a 200-level course on Buddhism.

This volume is a revision of a previous book, which I haven't read. In this new version, the author and publisher have two somewhat conflicting goals: One, to create an accessible and very interesting volume. Success!! I enjoyed it and learned a lot. However, the apparent goal to create an academic volume on bodhisattvas competes with accessibility. It may be frustrating for the reader who either cannot or doesn't care to get into the weeds about the 35 manifestations of Avalokitesvara or the 10 vows of another bodhisattva. But the reader should not be discouraged. She should scan the weedy sections to get a taste of the beautiful complexities, undaunted by the details. But I will keep this book nearby so I can find these details if and when I need them. Dharmas are boundless. My bodhisattva vow is to be teachable.

I was introduced to several new, yet widely popular, bodhisattvas. And I learned volumes about those bodhisattvas I thought I already knew -- especially cultural practices associated with each across the broad spectrum of Asian expressions.

Compelling. Well written.
