Summary

What's Wrong with Sex?

How to Drive Your Karma
Consciousness Commodified
The Karma of Food
The Three Poisons, Institutionalized
Why We Love War

These are just some of the chapters in this brilliant book from David R. Loy.

In little time, Loy has become one of the most powerful advocates of the Buddhist worldview, explaining like no one else its ability to transform the sociopolitical landscape of the modern world.

In this, his most accessible work to date, he offers sharp and even shockingly clear presentations of oft-misunderstood Buddhist staples - the working of karma, the nature of self, the causes of trouble on both the individual and societal levels - and the real reasons behind our collective sense of "never enough", whether it's time, money, sex, security...even war.

Loy's "Buddhist Revolution" is nothing less than a radical change in the ways we can approach our lives, our planet, the collective delusions that pervade our language, culture, and even our spirituality.

Where ecology meets spirituality

Why the West needs Buddhism, and Buddhism needs the West.
This book addressed many issues about Buddhism that I found problematic. Its seeming passivity in the face of the many crises facing the modern world. Written by a person who is an expert in the Western academic culture, as well as being a fully qualified Buddhist teacher and practitioner. An essential read for our times, for anyone from whatever philosophic or spiritual background. And also an enjoyable, accessible listen.
