The Buddha's Teachings on Social Harmony - BB

Post by Kim O'Hara » Thu Nov 24, 2016 3:07 am

A new book from Bhikkhu Bodhi -
The Buddha's Teachings on Social and Communal Harmony
An Anthology of Discourses from the Pali Canon

“Through scholarship and wise discernment Bhikkhu Bodhi has chosen a set of discourses that uncover and make clear the Buddha’s approach to social affairs. A timely and powerful resource for all varieties of peace work, The Buddha’s Teachings on Social and Communal Harmony provides a direct way to refer to the Buddha’s teachings around developing civil society. This is a fantastic support and inspiration for all of us who value and wish to foster a more harmonious world.”—Sharon Salzberg, author of Lovingkindness and Real Happiness
In this volume acclaimed scholar-monk Bhikkhu Bodhi has collected and translated the Buddha’s teachings on conflict resolution, interpersonal and social problem-solving, and the forging of harmonious relationships. The selections, all drawn from the Pāli Canon, the earliest record of the Buddha’s discourses, are organized into ten thematic chapters. ...

It does, indeed, look good. I just pre-ordered it on Amazon.

Looks interesting!

I thought Wisdom Publications shut down?

I've ordered and have started reading this book. I'm wondering if others have and what you think?

Happy New Year
