Secondary Title: Buddhists, Feminists, and the Art of the Self

Description: Although separated by history, language, and culture, both Buddhism and feminism are centrally concerned with the self: how we change or remain the same, and how we are shaped by others. Meeting the Great Bliss Queen is the first book to illuminate the surprising parallels and meaningful differences between these feminist and Buddhist ideas. Using the Great Bliss Queen, a Buddhist figure of enlightenment, as a focal point, Meeting the Great Bliss Queen explores how Buddhist philosophy and practice can help Western women understand themselves in new and empowering ways.

Anne Carolyn Klein is Professor and Chair of Religious Studies at Rice University; she also teaches meditation outside the university. She has studied Buddhist philosophy and practice with Asian scholars and meditation masters since 1971, including three years of field-work in India, Nepal, and Tibet.
