A Buddhist kaleidoscope: essays on the lotus sutra
What would Buddha say about health care ethics, social obligations, or feminism? 'A Buddhist Kaleidoscope' is a collection of essays by international scholars of Buddhism who provide historic and modern reflections on the greatest teachings of Buddha from the Lotus Sutra. Editor Gene Reeves includes a broad range of views - one essay considers the Lotus Sutra in relation to social obligations, while others apply feminist and paternalist readings to the text. The result is an in-depth exploration of the meaning of the sutra with broad implications for the modern world. 'A Buddhist Kaleidoscope' includes biographical information on featured authors and an extensive bibliography of books relating to the Lotus Sutra-making it one of the best resources on the market today for students of Buddhism. It also includes a foreword by the late Nichiko Niwano, founder of Rissho- Ko-sei-kai and recipient of the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion.
