Bernie Glassman’s 75th birthday, Zen career honored with book of Peter Cunningham’s photos

a thousand armsZen Buddhist teacher Bernie Glassman is approaching his 75th birthday, and one of the ways his Zen Peacemakers organization is honoring the occasion is through the release of a glossy coffee-table-size “photo essay” of images taken by photographer Peter Cunningham, spanning Glassman’s spiritual career. Entitled A Thousand Arms, a reference to the Bodhisattva of Compassion, the 234-page book is being sold as a fundraiser for Zen Peacekeepers’ Elder Fund, a project to support Glassman and his wife, Eve Marko (see the Buddhadharma News post on the Elder Fund here), as their schedule necessarily slows down.
