Bells, Gongs, and Wooden Fish
Voices for Buddhist Change
In Bells, Gongs, and Wooden Fish, Venerable Master Hsing Yun grants voices to the objects of daily monastic life to tell their stories and the story of Buddhism. From monastic shoes to robes and alms bowls, these everyday objects describe and criticize the stagnant Buddhism of early twentieth century China, and plot a course for reform so that Buddhism can remain vital and relevant today and into the future.
