The Buddha and the Bard
By Lauren Shufran
What does Shakespeare have to teach us about mindfulness? What Eastern spiritual views about death, love, and presence are reflected in the writings of The Bard? Lauren Shufran’s The Buddha and the Bard: Where Shakespeare’s Stage Meets Buddhist Scriptures* [Mandala/Simon & Schuster; April 19, 2022] reveals the surprising connections between a 2,500-year-old spiritual practise and the playwright that, 500 years after his death, continues to hold us in thrall.
Shakespeare understood and represented the human condition with a depth that changed the course of literature. The Buddha envisioned a path to liberate us from that condition. In The Buddha and the Bard, Lauren Shufran explores the fascinating interplay of Western drama and Eastern philosophy by pairing quotes from Shakespeare with the tenets of an Eastern spiritual practise, sparking a compelling dialogue between the two. There’s a remarkable interchange of echoes between Shakespeare’s conception of “the inward man” and Buddhist approaches to recognising, honouring, and working with our humanness as we play out our roles on the “stage” of our lives.
The Buddha and the Bard synthesises literature and scripture, embodied drama and transcendent practise, to shape a multifaceted lyric that we can apply as mindful practise in our own lives. Shufran’s compelling juxtapositions will encourage the reader to ask the deepest questions of themselves while delighting in the play of resonances across a cultural and historical divide
