Money, Sex, War, Karma, v.ution - Notes for a Buddhist (Paperback)


David R. Loy has become perhaps the greatest advocate of the Buddhist worldview's ability to transform the sociopolitical landscape of the modern world. In this, his most accessible work to date, he offers clear presentations of oft-misunderstood Buddhist staples -- the working of karma, the nature of self, the causes of trouble on both an individual and societal scale -- while also inviting readers to examine topics closer to home, such as "Why We Love War" and the real reasons behind the sense of never having enough time, money, sex, security, or anything else. His "Buddhist Revolution" is nothing less than a radical change in the ways readers can approach their lives, the environment, the collective delusions that pervade modern culture, and even spirituality itself. Bracing yet ultimately hopeful and empowering, "Money, Sex, War, Karma" offers positive tools for contributing to societal change.
