Her fellow monks and teachers This journal of her ACTIVITIES DOES NOT HOLD BACK ANY DETAIL OF THE does not hold back any detail of the and downs of the very difficult path she has undertaken Not an asy read but an uplifting one This book is a journey into the heart of a young Irish woman and her path to becoming Pansy Vol. 6 enlightened Injoyed reading about her journey and learning about Buddhism through her Edible Memory: The Lure of Heirloom Tomatoes and Other Forgotten Foods experiences I have much of an understanding of the Zen way of life now and am inspired by her unending determination to proceed on a pathven when the path is challenging in Elizabeth I emotional physical and many other ways I identify with her passion to become truly compassionate and it was heartening to read about her journey By whatever standard you would use Maura Soshin O Halloran 1955 1982 was an amazingly intriguing strong gifted woman I d never heard of her until I ran across her name in of all places a Roman Catholic publication which acknowledged her with a short bio of her as a deeply spiritual person I say of all places because though Maura was theldest of 6 children in a devout Irish Catholic family born in Massachusetts Education in a New Society educated in convent schools Trinity College Dublin she is most noted for being annlightened Zen nunpriest who trained in Japan In fact so deeply was she held in steem honor by the Buddhist community there that in 1983 the Maura Kannon Statue was dedicated in her honor by her master Tetsugyu Ban at the Kannonji Temple in Iwateken He proclaimed at the dedication She is given the posthumous name of Great Enlightened Lady of the same heart and mind as the Great Teacher Buddhaa real incarnation the posthumous name of Great Enlightened Lady of the same heart and mind as the Great Teacher Buddhaa real incarnation Kannon Bosatsu to be loved and respected foreverAt several points in the book Ruth O Halloran Maura s mother now deceased refers to the xtraordinary manner in which Soshin who was deeply loved by her family lived her life before after she ntered the monastery Tragically her life came to an abrupt nd in October 1982 at the age of 27 when she was killed in a bus accident in Thailand as she was on her way back to IrelandThe book is largely in SoshinMaura s own words from her letters journals It becomes immediately apparent to the reader what an insightful skilled writer she was One can only guess what riches she could ve offered to the world both as a writer as a human being One The Baby Swap Miracle example in her journal of July 11 1981 she writes Of late I feel ridiculously happy No reason Just bursting with joy I remember when I was young deciding to commit suicide at 26 Once one hit 30 one was over the hill so 26 was farnough to liv.

Very meditative read with a smart ass of an Irish narrator gaining nlightenment I love how Maura reminds us that no matter where you are on your spiritual path we re human There is such honesty in her writing I find it hugely inspirational I can only imagine the teacher she would have been today The collected journals and letters of Maura O Halloran make for an invaluable resource of information concerning the rigors of practicing Zen Buddhism as a temple monk What I found most interesting is how human Maura s fellow monks come across from her perspective I m Not Sure What I sure what I xpecting but I never considered that a Buddhist monk Can Have A Grouchy Lazy have a grouchy lazy generally disagreeable personality like Maura s primary antagonist Tetsugen Maura also describes the political infighting and backbiting that can sometimes occur within the temple It just goes to show that people are people no matter what robes they wear I will say my primary complaint about the book is how difficult it is to keep track of the various people who come in and out of her life Considering Maura presumably didn t write her journals with any consideration that others would someday read them she didn t take a lot of time properly introducing ach new player in her life So this leads to a lot of names being casually dropped leaving the reading scratching their head and asking Who s that again The primary players in her life are Excommunication: Three Inquiries in Media and Mediation easynough head and asking Who s that again The primary players in her life are Gender Justice easynough keep track of though such as her teacher Go Roshi and the aforementioned Tetsugen It s a shame and a waste that O Halloran s story Generations and Collective Memory ends so abruptly and tragically via a traffic accident caused by a drowsy bus driver However Maura s death is somewhat softened by her ownerie premonition that perhaps she had reached the nd of her life Either way at least she had the foresight to keep a meticulous nough record of her From Notes to Narrative experience that it could be read by curious students of Zen years later I read this book 15 years ago while living in the Western Pacific 15 years later I still think about her and her journey What can you ask for in a book than one that sticks with you I intend to read it again because we all know that certain books read you and not the other way around A remarkable moving and deep story of an Irish American woman in her twenties who goes to Japan to study Zen at a temple at a time thearly 1980s when few western women were admitted to such training After barely three years of inspired but Guitar Makers: The Endurance of Artisanal Values in North America extremely arduous training she is ordained as a Buddhist priest a speed that amazes.
