Description About the author
Alan Clements was the first American to become a Buddhist monk in Burma, where he lived for the good part of a decade, Since leaving the monastery, he has become a spiritual maverick, working for global human rights and teaching his contemporary understanding of liberation to audiences around the world.
This book is a compelling blend of adventurous autobiography and provocative inquiry. Here he presents what he calls World Dharma; an approach to spiritual development that mirrors the narrative of his visionary life. He gives voice to an essential spirituality that can be common to all people; an engaged mysticism based in one precious human value: freedom, the liberation from fear, ignorance, and dogma and the elevation of dignity, conscience, and beauty.
For Clements, freedom is rooted in real life experience, in holding life's complexities in balance with its wondrous gifts, and in the transformational power of relationships with other people and with the world. Exploring the nature of consciousness and our place in the mysterious cosmos may be the key to our freedom, he says. We must find our liberation through living, in this very moment, now, in whatever circumstances we face.
