Description About the author Contents
 
The massive outpouring of consumer products available to most people living in the West today might alone lead one to ask, "How much is enough?" But at the same time, if we allow ourselves to see the social, political, economic, and environmental consequences of the system that produces such a mass of "goods", then the question is not simply a matter of one's own personal choice, but points to the profound importance of our day-to-day decisions.

This collection brings together essays from an international conference jointly sponsored by Ryukoku University, Kyoto, and the Institute of Buddhist Studies at UC Berkeley. The effects of our own decisions and actions on the human environment are examined from several different perspectives, all informed by Buddhist thought. The contributors are all simultaneously Buddhist scholars, practitioners, and activists--and this powerful collection demonstrates the integral unity of theory and practice for Buddhism.
