A Buddhist Guide to Making the World a Better Place
Melvin McLeod (editor) – Wisdom Publications
This is not your typical political book. It's
not written at a fever pitch, it doesn't use a good/bad binary,
and it doesn't tout partisan policies. Instead, this timely
collection addresses the less-discussed but more important
questions about politics: What insight does religion have to
offer politics? How can we as concerned citizens move beyond
the particulars of legislation and party affiliation, and take
direct action? How, amid divisive and challenging times, can
personal growth and effective advocacy take place together?
In short, Mindful Politics offers the persectives of 34 important
authors and thinkers on how each of us, right now, can make
the world a better place.
