Leserkritik

"This collection broadens our understanding of what Engaged Buddhism is and what it isn't. The grass-roots movements for peace and justice that arose in the 1950s in India, Tibet, Vietnam, and Sri Lanka were termed 'engaged' by monks, laypeople and scholars, who saw their nonviolent methods as expressions of spiritual practice. This volume places these movements alongside the rise of monastic corruption, state-sponsored terrorism, ethnic cleansing and guerrilla theater - all in the name of Buddhism. This book is a valuable synopsis of a new wave of cautionary scholarship." - Christopher Queen, Lecturer in Extension, Harvard University, US, and Co-editor of Engaged Buddhism: Buddhist Liberation Movements in Asia, Engaged Buddhism in the Wes t, an d Action Dharma: New Studies in Engaged Buddhism.
