From Nobel Peace Prize nominee Sulak Sivaraksa comes this look at Buddhism’s innate ability to help change life on the global scale. Conflict, Culture, Change explores the cultural and environmental impacts of consumerism, nonviolence, and compassion, giving special attention to the integration of mindfulness and social activism, the use of Buddhist ethics to confront structural violence, and globalization’s threat to traditional identity.
