Engaged Buddhism: The Dalai Lama's Worldview
Engaged Buddhism: The Dalai Lama's Worldview
Description
From the Jacket :

The Dalai Lama's ethical teachings have gained recognition the world over. His actions and writings reflect a concern for combining ancient religious traditions with a contemporary political, social, and religious cause, extending to the arena of international politics and human relations.

Highlighting the relevance of traditional Buddhist ideals of wisdom and compassion in modern social activism, Engaged Buddhism is a movement that seeks to synthesize philosophy and life. Arguably the most renowned of the Engaged Buddhists, the Dalai Lama's thought symbolizes a religious and ethical response to situations and the human condition.

One of the first books to analyse the conceptual foundations of the Dalai Lama's thought, this volume elaborates on various issues such as his views on human rights, religious, non-violent conflict resolution, and the environment. Puri carries out an in-depth analysis of the Dalai Lama's thought by categorizing it under various sub-themes. Allusions to other thinkers and writers draw parallels to the thought of the Dalai Lama, thus highlighting its eclectic dimensions.

The book includes an interview Puri had conducted personally with Dalai Lama, a revealing first-hand account of his life and philosophy. Also included is comprehensive bibliography of works by and on the Dalai Lama.

This important volume will attract a wide audience of students and scholars across religious, philosophy, Buddhist studies, Tibetan studies, peace studies, and international relations. The lay reader too will find this an informative and a rewarding read.

About the Author :

Bharati Puri is a visiting Research Fellow at Tamkang University, Taipei. She has taught in the Department of Philosophy at the Indian Institute of Technology, Delhi and has been a Post-doctoral Fellow at the Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, Delhi.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
