“Outrider is a line of demarcation. It’s words-obsession for the honor, dignity of a mind ill at ease, restless, jumping from desk to orally standing-at-attention, examining itself. A maker of poetry.” This is Anne Waldman’s first of many descriptions of the poetic Outrider tradition celebrated in this collection of poems, essays, and interviews.Outrider is a term she adopted in 1974 to capture the spirit of the poetry program she founded with Allen Ginsberg at Naropa University; for Waldman, Outrider is a lineage that extends back to Walt Whitman and includes all of those American poets who resisted the trends of the day in search of something new.


Chöd in the Ganden Tradition:
The Oral Instructions of Kyabje Zong Rinpoche
Kyabje Zong Rinpoche;
Snow Lion Publications, 2006
218 pp.; $18.95 (paper)

The central practice of the Tibetan teaching system of Chöd involves visualizing a ritual feast in which demons are invited to devour the body of the practitioner and cut away at ego-attachments and the fears that perpetuate them. The ideal setting for this practice is a charnel ground–home to sundry demons–among rotting corpses. In this new volume from Snow Lion, the great modern Tibetan master Kyabje Zong Rinpoche provides detailed instructions for the practice of Chöd along with bone-chilling and often humorous tales of Chöd masters and their students.
