Book Summary

Buddhism and the 21st Century is destined to become the reference point of the 2550th Anniversary of the Mahaparinirvana of Lord Buddha—the literary experience and the intellectual challenge as well as an artistic expression and a spiritual testimony of that memorial event.

Buddhism and the 21st Century is: 

A literary experience - your opportunity to be there through the  Conference writers

  • from all over India and from Brazil, China, Estonia, Germany, Hungary, Japan, Malaysia, Sri Lanka, Taiwan, Thailand, UK and USA

An intellectual challenge - an exposure to the fermenting discussion  in the 2550th year

  • from the millennium of Buddhist India, the tipping point of Mahayana Buddhism and the compassion of bared fangs Tantric Buddhism
  • to Buddhism’s contemporary political voice, issues of gender equality,  and  the  relevance of liberty, equality and fraternity in Dr. B. R. Ambedkar’s socially engaged Buddhism   

An artistic expression - a never-before collection of beauty and imagination

  • via historical icons, sensitive images, and evocative creativity on every page

A spiritual testimony - voices of Buddhism

  • from the landmark individuals of Queen Mah"apraj"apati, A«soka, A«svagho]sa and Eshes Od
  • to the contemporary devotees in the Americas, Europe, Taiwan, China, Southeast Asia and South Asia 

Buddhism and the 21st Century, a veritable literary encyclopedia on Buddhism, gives a comprehensive and intensive treatment to the issues of peace, non-violence, co-operative life and individual enlightenment relevant to the contemporary world from the Lord Buddha’s perspective.
