True Peace Work
Essential Writings on Engaged Buddhism - Thich Nhat Hanh, Dalai Lama, bell hooks, Bill McKibben, Gary Snyder, Maha Ghosananda, Charles Johnson, Bhikkhu Bodhi, Matthieu Ricard and others
Now a modern classic, True Peace Work is the premier collection of writings on the practice of Engaged Buddhism.
Zen Master Thich Nhat Hanh coined the term Engaged Buddhism in the 1960s as part of his peace work in Vietnam. It has grown to become a worldwide movement.The topics covered in this book are especially relevant in today's world: from creating nonviolent social change, to raising climate awareness, to simply learning how to walk (and enjoy it). This is not purely an activist's manual, however. True Peace Work is a spiritual bedrock that is as timeless as it is timely, one that insists on the connection between peace in oneself and peace in the world.
Originally published in 1996 as Engaged Buddhist Reader, this revised edition has been expanded for our current time with a new introduction and additional contributors.
