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.
