Summary: The term ''engaged Buddhism'' was coined by the Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh as a way of asserting that Buddhism should not be passive or otherworldly, but on the contrary, that Buddhists should be deeply, compassionately involved in every aspect of society where suffering arises.Not Turning Awayis a treasury of writings on the philosophy and practice of engaged Buddhism by some of the most well-known and respected figures in the movement, gleaned from the pages of the magazine that i mores the primary forum for engaged Buddhism in America and elsewhere:Turning Wheel: The Journal of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship.Not Turning Awayprovides a history of the engaged Buddhism movement, an analysis of its underlying principles, and inspiring practical examples of real people's experiences in putting spiritual practice to the test on the personal, national, and global levels. The range of topics-from political oppression to prison work, disability, racism, poverty, nonviolence, forgiveness, the student-teacher relationship, and homelessness-demonstrates the applicability of Buddhist teaching to every concern of modern life. Contributors include: Robert Aitken Jan Chozen Bays Melody Ermachild Chavis Zoketsu Norman Fischer Thich Nhat Hanh Jack Kornfield Kenneth Kraft Joanna Macy Jarvis Jay Masters Fleet Maull Susan Moon Wendy Egyoku Nakao Maylie Scott Gary Snyder Robert Thurman Joan Tollifson Diana Winston less
