Overview

With clarity and openness, this proposal offers presentations of oft-misunderstood Buddhist staples—karma, the nature of self, the causes of both individual and societal troubles—and encourages stark self-reflection on issues such as modern society’s constant drive for more money, sex, stimulation, and the seemingly unending propensity for war. Offering profound alternatives to these negative aspects of modern life, this guide puts forth ideas for a revolution that favors social justice and peace. Buddhist thought meets Western sensibilities in this bracing, hopeful, and empowering discussion.

 

Con claridad y franqueza, esta propuesta ofrece presentaciones de elementos básicos del budismo frecuentemente mal interpretados—el karma, la naturaleza del yo y las causas de problemas individuales y sociales—y anima autorreflexión escueta sobre temas como el impulso constante de la sociedad a tener más dinero, más sexo y más estimulación y la propensión al parecer sin fin por la guerra. Ofreciendo alternativas profundas ante estos aspectos negativos de la vida moderna, esta guía plantea ideas para una revolución a favor de la justicia social y la paz. El pensamiento budista se encuentra con sensibilidades occidentales en esta discusión vigorizante, optimista y apoderada.
