Where Are All the Asian American Buddhists March 28, 2021
The animating question was a popular topic on the Buddhist blogosphere as writers bemoaned the erasing of Asian American Buddhism in portrayals of American Buddhism.  For Chenxing Han the question became the driver of a series of conversations that led to a master thesis that evolved into her first book, Be the Refuge: Raising the Voices of American Buddhists. Part memoir, part anthology - Han skillfully brings her training as a chaplain to curate conversations and a new framework for understanding how privilege, culture, and identity intersect in the American Buddhist landscape–the longer unedited conversation will be released as a podcast.

Chenxing Han, Author of Be the Refuge: Raising the Voices of Asian American Buddhists. She holds an MA in Buddhist Studies from the Graduate Theological Union, and studied chaplaincy at the Institute of Buddhist Studies in Berkeley,
