Summary
"Engaged Buddhism is the contemporary movement of nonviolent social and political activism found throughout the Buddhist world. Its ethical theory sees the world in terms of cause and effect, a view that discourages its practitioners from becoming adversaries, blaming or condemning one another. Its leaders include the Dalai Lama, head of the Tibetan liberation movement; Thich Nhat Hanh, a principal strategist of the Buddhist anti-war movement; A.T. Aryaratne, founder of Sri Lanka's grassroots development and peace movement; Aung San Suu Kyi, leader of Myanmar's democracy movement; and Venerable Maha Ghosananda, "the Cambodian Gandhi" and head of the Buddhist effort to heal that war torn country."--Jacket
