Bibliography Index About Buddhism in China: I wouldn't say this is a complete bibliography but it could be good starting place. Sorted by author; from the University of Maine at Farmington

Bodhi Journal: first issue published October, 2006; published by Tung Lin Kok Yuen, a Buddhist charity & educational foundation in Hong Kong. from their site: " The Bodhi Journal is a quarterly digital magazine that seeks to enhance awareness of Buddhist issues and facilitate spiritual growth through publishing Buddhist related features, academic articles, teachings and other literary works. Bodhi Journal content is geared towards an international, multi-sectarian and general readership, and our focus is contemporary, global, humanistic and strictly non-denominational.  A major theme of our publication is the ways in which Buddhism, in its many forms, relates to, and interacts with, contemporary societies and cultures."

Deep Streams: "Deep Streams Zen Institute offers authentic zen practice with Joseph Bobrow Roshi. We also provide continuing education for the enrichment and well-being of mental health practitioners, drawing on mindfulness and Buddhism..."

Journal of Buddhist Ethics: the title says it all. Free online journal.

Journal of Global Buddhism: an online electronic journal "that interprets "global" in a broad geographic and sociological sense, but with a particular focus on developments in industrialized, non-Asian countries."

Journal of Religious Studies: Journal of the Nanzen Institute; an excellent resouce. Articles from 1976 to present are available for download.

Mountain Record: The Zen Practioner's Journal: the journal of John Daido Loori's Mountains and Rivers Order. Highly recommended.

New Chan Forum: Journal of the Western Chan fellowship. "Content varies considerably from issue to issue, but typically includes Dharma talks, reports on their meditation and retreat experiences written by participants, comment on contemporary Zen and Buddhism, pictures, poetry, etc."

Shambhala Sun: North America's oldest Buddhist magazine. "The Shambhala Sun offers authentic teachings from the Buddhist and other contemplative traditions, and applies the wisdom born of meditative practice to all the important issues in life - from livelihood, parenting, and relationships to politics, social action, and the arts."

Zen Friends and Dharma Eye: both journals available here from SotoZen.net It is unfortunate that there isn't a table of contents for the various issues. You have to chose an issue, then go to the table of contents. Makes browsing difficult.


These are links to some academic sites of interest about Zen Buddhism.

acmuller.net: Charles Muller is Professor in the Humanities Department at Toyo Gakuen University in Chiba, Japan and an academic on (especially) Korean Zen. Lots of excellent translations and articles.

Zen Buddhism Virtual Library: This is Matthew Ciolek's extensive site on Zen. The link will take you to his electronic newsletters and journals. You can access the rest of the site from any page.

Nanzen Institute: this is a very large site of the Nanzen Institute for Religion and Culture. This link will allow you to search for articles in the Journal of Religious Studies. Some very interesting papers are here. Their Bulletin "serves as a short academic journal in its own right, with articles of general interest and timely features on themes of current importance on the Japanese religious scene."

Joseph S. O'Leary: teaches at Sophia University, Tokyo. This is a rich site of writings on religion, Buddhism, philosophy and literature. O'Leary has many essays and book reviews.

Resources for the Study of Buddhism: An excellent resources site, compiled by Dr Ron Epstein of the Philosophy Department San Francisco State University. Some good translations of Buddhist Sutras, some with commentaries by Master  Hsuan Hua (there's a whole site here dedicated to his teachings). A good resource.
