Future call for papers:
 Buddhism and the Environment   and    Yogācāra Practices

The founder, editor, and publisher of Blue Pine Books, Venerable Dr. Chanju Mun (ordination name: Seongwon), passed from saṃsāra in 2017. We had planned two volumes for the near future as follows.

1. We received approval to co-edit papers for a special section on "Buddhism and the Environment" to be published in the journal ASIANetwork Exchange. We hoped to also create a Blue Pine Books volume on this topic.

2. We planned to issue a call for chapters for a volume on Yogācāra Practices, a long-term personal and academic interest we shared. While yogācāra philosophy deservingly receives some publication attention, although not enough, we thought a volume focusing on such issues as yogācāra bodhisattva actions, yogācāra meditation, as well as the histories of specific yogācāra traditions would be a useful and interesting contribution to the field as well. Of course these articles would be informed by yogācāra philosophy.

Venerable Seongwon (Dr. Chanju Mun) speaking at Tongdosa temple. I propose completing these as A Festschrift in Honor of the Work of Chanju Mun. This could be done either as a Blue Pine Books volume (which is not-for-profit) or as a publication by a university or other academic press. If it is to be via Blue Pines Books, these two things are needed: (1) publication funds and (2) a qualified editorial board.

Please send inquires and suggestions to Ronald S. Green at rgreen@coastal.edu. Blue Pine Books remains committed to publishing quality academic materials and to promoting the high standards of our academic advisors, friends, and communities.
