Overview

Without resorting to a reductionist “good versus bad” binary or trying to push any particular political agenda, this is a compilation of the points of view of various great thinkers on how to make the world a better place. It responds to often overlooked but no less important questions about politics, such as What can religion offer politics? What can citizens do that goes beyond mere legislation or affiliation with a particular party? and How can personal growth and the staunch defense of a cause converge in a time of great partisanship and challenges? The contributions of 34 prominent Buddhists engaged in politics—including the Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh, and David Loy—are organized by categories that describe Buddhism’s noble eightfold path and illustrate how each person can contribute to improving the world.

 Sin caer en el reduccionismo binario de “bien y mal” ni intentar vender políticas partidistas, ésta es una recopilación del punto de vista de grandes pensadores sobre cómo se puede hacer del mundo un lugar mejor. Trata aquellas cuestiones menos debatidas pero más importantes sobre la política, como ¿Qué puede aportar la religión a la política? ¿Cómo pueden los ciudadanos hacer algo que vaya más allá de la mera legislación y la afiliación a un partido? y ¿Cómo pueden confluir el crecimiento personal y la defensa efectiva de una causa en tiempos de división y grandes desafíos? Las contribuciones de 34 prominentes budistas involucrados en la política—incluyendo el Dalai Lama, Thich Nhat Hanh y David Loy—están organizados por categorías que describen el noble sendero óctuple del budismo e ilustran cómo cada persona puede contribuir a un mundo mejor.
