Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What would Buddha say about health care ethics, social obligations, or feminism? A Buddhist Kaleidoscope is a collection of essays by international scholars of Buddhism who provide historic and modern reflections on the greatest teachings of Buddha from the Lotus Sutra. Editor Gene Reeves includes a broad range of views: one essays considers the Lotus Sutra in relation to social obligations, while others apply feminist and paternalist readings to the text. The result is an in-depth exploration of the meaning of the sutra with broad implications for the modern world. A Buddhist Kaleidoscope includes biographical information on featured authors and an extensive bibliography of books relating to the Lotus Sutra--making it one of the best resources on the market today for students of Buddhism. It also includes a foreword by the late Nichiko Niwano, founder of Rissho Kosei-kai and recipient of the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion.
