The Great Awakening
A Buddhist Social Theory
By David Loy
Scholar and Zen teacher David Loy examines how these three poisons, embodied in society’s institutions, lie at the root of all social maladies as well. The teachings of Buddhism present a way that the individual can counteract these to alleviate personal sufffering, and in the The Great Awakening Loy boldly examines who these teachings can be applied to institutions and even whole cultures for the alleviation of suffering on a collective level.
