Description About the author Contents
 
Engaged Buddhists have attracted world-wide attention in the 21st
century. They are carrying on non-violent struggles in different regions
of the world, for promoting democracy, justice and human rights.
Research scholars are interviewing them to elicit their views on
questions related to the scope of their work as also the methods that
they are employing to enhance the effectiveness of their struggles. This
book provides answers to such questions that have been extracted from
two of the main scriptures of Mahayana Buddhism viz. The Lotus Sutra and
Shantidevas Bodhicaryavatara, which have inspired most of the engaged
Buddhists. Relevant portions of the Sanskrittexts have been
identified, and are reproduced here, along with their simple meaning in
English. The pattern of presentation is similar to the authors earlier
book The Social Role of the Gita: How and Why, which has won the
hearts of Gandhian scholars. This presentation provides ample proof of
similarity between the social message of Bhagavad Gita and of the two
Mahayana-texts.
