    The Jew in the Lotus:
    A Poet's Rediscovery of Jewish Identity in Buddhist India, by Rodger Kamenetz

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                (A Poet's Rediscovery of Jewish Identity in Buddhist India) Rodger
                Kamenetz. HarperSanFrancisco, 1994.

                The Dalai Lama met with a group of Jewish leaders in Dharamsala
                to learn the secrets of Jewish cultural survival through generations
                of diaspora. Poet Rodger Kamenetz came along to observe the historic
                moment The Jew In The Lotus is his record of o spiritual journey,
                with its paradoxes, arguments, humor, and learning. Kabbalah
                encounters Buddhist tantra, perhaps not for the first time, but
                never before so accessibly. in the struggle for spiritual and
                cultural survival in the modern world, the participants engage in
                true dialogue -- the kind that "changes the speakers from you and me
                to we and us all."
                * Obviously, the Dalai Lama's efforts at both preservation and
                adaptation are very important. But in Jewish life, much of the
                day-to-day task of preservation has fallen on women. The active site
                has not been the temple, but the home. It was Blu Greenberg's turn
                to speak. She is not only a Jewish mother and grandmother but also
                the author of How to Run a Traditional Jewish Household, an
                excellent guide to the subject.
                Blu began by praising all the efforts and achievements of the
                Tibetans over the last thirty years, "the planning ahead and looking
                forward," but added in a homely way that brought the discussion down
                to earth, "nevertheless, exile is exile." She wanted to talk about
                what she feels has been the most significant institution for helping
                the Jews through a very long exile, the family. And she wanted "to
                know from Your Holiness what role you see the Tibetan Buddhist
                family playing in the years ahead."
                * Now the Dalai Lama offered the Jews advice. Open the doors and
                open them wide. In learning about Jewish mystical teachings, he
                confessed that he had "developed more respect toward Judaism because
                I found much sophistication there." He thought that what he had
                learned about the four levels of interpretation and Jewish
                meditation is very important and should be made available for
                everyone, especially to the sharp-minded. He gave a parallel from
                Buddhist history. Like kabbalah, traditionally Buddhist tantra as
                taught in India had been very secretive, very confidential, and
                given only very selectively to very few students. "Public teaching
                never happened." But if there is too much secrecy, sometimes there
                is a danger that the tradition will discontinue and that many
                qualified persons will miss the teaching and the practice.
