Globalization has brought different civilizations and peoples into
new and closer contact. But this novel intimacy has not always led
to greater understanding. There is an urgent need to work towards a
global civilization based on principles of peace, mutual respect
and tolerance. It is precisely that goal which the participants
attempt in this classic dialogue. Inspired by the encounters
between Buddhism and Islam as they exchanged ideas and goods along
the Silk Road, it brings together a Sufi Muslim from Iran and one
of the world's most influential lay Buddhist leaders to explore the
vibrant areas of common ground between the Islamic and Buddhist
traditions. Coloured by Sufi philosophy and by Buddhist thought and
practice, and drawing on a diverse selection of thinkers -
including Rumi and Hafez, Rabindranath Tagore, Jurgen Habermas and
Antonio Gramsci - Reflections on the Global Civilization offers a
profound meditation on conflict, loss and injustice, as well as the
vitality of interfaith discussion. It shows that Islam and Buddhism
have much to offer, not only to each other, but also to the world
as a whole.
