Dharma Publishing Opens New Bookstore

If you are in the Berkeley, California area tomorrow (Saturday, November 7th 2009), go over to 2210 Harold Way at 10:00 a.m., for the grand opening of the new Dharma Publishing Bookstore. This should be easy enough to find, because it is probably the only storefront on Harold Way decorated in what... Neo-Penitentiary Modern?

During the Berkey riots, we used to go back and forth from Tarthang Tulku's house on Webster Street to the original "Dharma Press," which was located on Durant Avenue. Instead of incense, we used to smell teargas. From the above storefront, one might assume that the experience left an indelible impression.

Seems like only yesterday, but it was 40 years ago.

Great news!! It's been 30 years since my Berkeley days and I guess I kind of figured that Berkeley too had gone the way of starbucks and chanin bookstores.

Shambhala Bookstore on Telegraph is no more, and Cody's is also gone. Very sorry to see.
