Description About the author Contents
The economic, social and ecological crises of modern times calls for a perspective that can incorporate Buddhist insights and principles such as generosity, loving kindness and wisdom. In "The Great Awakening" Buddhist teachings and Western social analysis meet and form a dynamic Buddhist social theory.

"In this daring work, David Loy applies his theory of a Buddhist psychology of 'lack' -- the human experience of incompleteness and craving -- to a dazzling array of social problems in the world today including economic injustice and political tyranny, war and terrorism after 9/11, and the destruction of our natural environment. In so doing, he exemplifies the rise of socially engaged Buddhism and this new vehicle of spiritual practice." ---- PROFESSOR CHRISTOPHER S. QUEEN, HARVARD UNIVERSITY, EDITOR OF Engaged Buddhism in the West
