Suppose your mental awareness allowed you to approach situations from a totally different perspective than is usually true in Western thought. Would your alternatives and/or solutions be multiplied? Buddhism is said to be the fastest-growing religion and one of the most influential spiritual movements in North America and Europe. In this spiritually uplifting book, some of the world's major figures from different schools of Buddhism discuss the significant role that Buddhism is playing in the new planetary culture-one quite different from the usual East-West encounters of the past. Some of the issues being discussed include: the contributionsnthat Buddhism is making to the world, and the value of its explanation of existence;
the non-violent nature of Buddhist philosophy;
Buddhist history and its impact on various Asian countries, as well as the West;
the pragmatic relevance of Buddhist precepts and how they can enable us to meet the challenges of daily life and an overview of the origins, evolution, and philosophy of Buddhism and the importance of supporting the Tibetansand their human rights relative to China's occupation of Tibet.
