Description
What does Buddhism have to say about sickness, poverty, and warfare, or about social and political action? Would renowned Buddhist teachers of today go on the record with their thoughts and perspectives on the issues that concern the Western world? Robert Sachs decided to find out, creating a questionnaire and taking it to such Buddhist masters as Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche, Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche, Geshe Michael Roach, Ajahn Amaro, and Roshi Joan Halifax. Their comments and conclusions are inspirational, often surprising, and sometimes politically controversial as they consider problems from the conflict in the Middle East to global warming, providing empowering words of wisdom and explaining how we can become part of the impetus for change. The foreword is taken from the Dalai Lama's Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech.
