Buddhist Roles in Peacemaking How Buddhism Can Contribute to Sustainable Peace

£9.99

Product description

This volume is the fifth in a series about socially engaged Buddhism published by Blue Pine Books. The publisher adheres to high academic standards, requiring strict documentation of sources and coherence of ideas. Readers will find in these articles some of the best resources available for understanding socially engaged Buddhism and peacemaking. We live in a world of conflict. Even though theorists had believed scientific and technological advancement would end suffering, the applications of these developments had just as often perpetuated the problem. In contrast, Buddhism is widely thought of as a way of peace and tranquilly for individual practitioners. Drawing fro Theravada and Mahayana traditions, this volume is a resource for thinking about and acting upon peacemaking from vital positions. Some of the contributors turn a critical gaze even upon Buddhism in hopes of building better future applications. Others look back to the earliest words of the Awakened One, finding specific teachings of utmost importance for our tasks today. Buddhists and scholars from a variety of religious traditions and academic disciplines have contributed these articles based on scholastic research and personal experience.
