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 new book from David R. Loy.In little time, Loy has become one of the Buddhist worldview's most powerful advocates, 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
