Description About the author Contents
This book explores the integration of mindfulness with social activism; using Buddhist ethics to confront structural violence; globalization's threat to traditional identity; and the recent transformation of Thailand.

Sulak Sivaraksa has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and received the Right Livelihood Award and the Gandhi Millennium Award. He is the founder of the International Network of Engaged Buddhists and more than a dozen other international organizations. Born in 1933, the year Thailand emerged from absolute monarchy into democracy, his life has been intimately bound up with Southeast Asia''s modern history. He was a Buddhist monk for two years, and then completed his higher education in Great Britain, where he also worked as a writer and commentator for the BBC. He is the intellectual voice of his generation in Asia, best known for his indefatigable efforts to bring people together into community, common work, and a shared vision of a more enlightened world. Sulak is author of Seeds of Peace: A Buddhist Vision for Renewing Society and more than 100 other books and monographs. He lives in Thailand.
