We’re delighted to introduce Entertaining Cancer: The Buddhist Way. We’ll be publishing this wonderful new book by Devamitra in February 2022.
In Entertaining Cancer, Devamitra chronicles his years of treatment for prostate cancer. He describes the fatigue, the heightened sense of being alive, and the discomforts and indignities of treatment. He also draws on the deep well of his Buddhist practice to work with his mind and meet fear, uncertainty and frailty with resolve. It is an entertaining read, full of humour, wit and fantastically funny dialogue.
What can Buddhism offer the world today? What does it mean to live a Buddhist life? Gather with young people from around the world for four intergenerational conversations and a chance to meet others aged 30 and under through discussion groups.
Last summer Charlotte Lawes, a mitra at the LBC, interviewed Devamitra about his ongoing experiences of living with cancer. Devamitra has been writing a blog called ‘Can Can Cancer Dancer’ initially to ensure that he did not lose touch with a valuable opportunity for Dharmic reflection, but also so that others might benefit from hearing about his experiences.
The interview touches on the themes of beauty, solitude and Devamitra’s thoughts on the future.
