Quotes by Joanna Macy



Western Buddhists are very suspicious of attachment. They feel they need to be detached . . . so donít get upset about racism, or injustice, or the poison in the rivers, because that means youíre too attached. I think one of the problems with Westernized Buddhists is premature equanimity. When the Buddha said Ďdonít be attached,í he meant donít be attached to the ego.
