    Modern Buddhist Classics Book Group: Round Two: Engaged Buddhism

    Online

    Meets the first Sunday of the month; starting July 5. Please register by June 15 if you want to participate in the July meeting.

    In this online book group, we will explore books from various traditions that are shaping contemporary Buddhist thinking, particularly in the West, but which signify an evolving Buddhism around the world.

    The theme for Round Two of our book group is Engaged Buddhism, a dharma practice that flows from the understanding of the complete and complex interdependence of all life. It is the practice of the bodhisattva vow to save all beings. It is based on the understanding that the liberation of ourselves and the liberation of others are inseparable. Engaged Buddhists draw on the teachings of the Buddha to inform their actions on issues such as war, racism, poverty, globalization, the criminal justice system, and climate change.
