Wisdom of the Buddhist Masters by Robert Sachs
Book DescriptionThese teachers address many of the topics affecting the world including: war, poverty, the growing trend of drug and alcohol abuse, the distorting influence of the media, the dangerous pursuit of wealth and the importance of education. What we find is that, as Sachs sums up: 'Like facets of a diamond, what we hear from them is not some unified chorus, but rather, different perspectives and emphases based on their life experiences and where they focus their energies to benefit those around them'. The masters interviewed are: HH Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche, Ven. Tarthang Tulku Rinpoche, Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche, Geshe Michael Roach, Ajahn Amaro, Roshi Joan Halifax, Ven. Thubten Chodron, Christopher Titmuss and Tenzin Robert Thurman. This book is introduced by insightful words from HH The Dalai Lama.
