Ahimsa: Based On Buddhism And Gandhism
Ahimsa: Based On Buddhism And Gandhism
By: Meeta Nath
Our Price: $30.00
Members Price: $27.00

The two most dominating personalities of India, Buddha and Gandhi, have dwelt on the notion Ahimhsa as the most important aspect of moral life. There is a definite commonality of ideas and sources of the thought of Buddha and Gandhi. Several important parts of their thinking appear to derive from similar or shared concerns. Both of them adumbrated extensive systems of ethics within which all aspects of their thinking were organized. Ahimsa is the keynote of the ethics of Buddhism. Non-injury in thought word and deed, love, goodwill, patience, endurance, forgiveness, compassion, and self-purification are the virtues to be cultivated. Buddhist morality is the mean between self-indulgence and self-mortification-the middle way. Rama, Krsna. Moses, Zoroaster, Buddha, Confucius, Mahavira, Jesus, Nanaka, Vivek, Snanda, and other prophets and teachers taught mankind the sanctity and supremacy of spiritual and moral values. Gandhi was intellectual continuum and growth of the moral effervescence represented by these teachers.

This is the first scholarly treatment of the emergence of American Buddhist Studies as a significant research field.

Topics in Contemporary Buddhism
Engaged Buddhism is the contemporary movement of nonviolent social and political activism found throughout the Buddhist world. Its ethical theory sees the world in terms of cause and effect, a view that discourages its practitioners from becoming adversaries, blaming or condemning the other. Its leaders make some of the most important contributions in the Buddhist world to thinking about issues in political theory, human rights, nonviolence, and social justice.

Buddha: The Social-Revolutionary Potential Trevor Ling
Buddha: The Social-Revolutionary Potential
By: Trevor Ling
Our Price: $17.95
Members Price: $16.16

A warm and stimulating book, this text describes the India into which
the Buddha was born, recounts what is known of his life and the
development of his teachings, and then follows the course of Buddhism
through succeeding centuries in India and Sri Lanka. Far from being a
recluse concerned only with an inner mystical experience, the Buddha
always involved himself closely in the social and political world of his
time. If he preached detachment from many of the things by which
ordinary men are tied, he did so as a means of enriching life rather
than escaping it. These examinations and more make this a book to reveal
the social-revolutionary potential of Buddhism.
Buddhism and Abortion
By: Damien Keown
Our Price: $22.95
Members Price: $20.66

Abortion is arguably the most controversial and divisive moral issue of modern times, but until now the debate has taken place almost exclusively within a Western cultural, religious and philosophical context.
For the past three decades in the West, arguments both for and against abortion have been mounted by groups of all kinds, from religious fundamentalists to radical feminists and every shade of opinion in between. Rather than mutual understanding, however, the result has been the polarization of opinion and the deepening of entranced positions.

The history of Buddhism has been characterized by an ongoing tension between attempts to preserve traditional ideals and modes of practice and the need to adapt to changing cultural conditions.

At the same time, Buddhism has been able to maintain its doctrinal purity to a remarkable degree.

Four Noble Truths of Wealth: A Buddhist View of Economic Life
By: Layth Matthews
Our Price: $17.95
Members Price: $16.15

The Buddhist advice for economic life is the same as for every other aspect of life: start with the view. The idea is that understanding the foundations of a situation, in this case the human condition, helps us to make better choices going forward. All human beings wish to be happy and free from suffering. The Buddhist approach is to contemplate the nature of happiness and suffering themselves as the means to navigate toward a more joyful existence and the elimination of suffering. Here suffering is distinguished from pain as the misery that comes from being habitually unable to appreciate things as they are.

Exploratory and meditative, even playful at times, it expands the sense of invocation  of the theme, including literary, religious, sociological, and anthropological dimensions.
