About this title

Synopsis:

Buddhism and Peace: Theory and Practice is among the most comprehensive books on this topic to date. Of the seven international seminars on Buddhism and Leadership for Peace, which have gained worldwide reputation in leading discussions on Buddhism and peace, the seventh seminar was the most successful. Thirty-one eminent scholars and activists among the more than forty participants presented papers on Buddhism and peace from the varying perspectives of their expertise. The two major Buddhist traditions, the Theravada and the Mahayana, are equally represented in this book. Likewise, a balance is struck in this book in terms of the number of articles dealing with theory and those concentrating on practice. The result is a collection of essential readings on the application of Buddhist wisdom for peace activists, scholars of religion, social scientists, and others in these troubled times, Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.
