Index

"Few have poured their lives into the contemporary movement that is dedicated to recovering Buddhism's social outreach with as much dedication and effectiveness as Donald Rothberg." -Huston Smith, author of The World's Religions

"Donald Rothberg is a remarkably talented teacher whose writing, like his teaching style, is interesting, engaging, upbeat, and-most importantly-hopeful. This is the authoritative map describing the connection between wisdom and social action, and it does so clearly, simply, nonacademically, and entertainingly. The specific practices it offers inspire confidence that transforming ourselves and the world is a possibility-which is the best message in the world in times like these."
