“Buddha at the Apocalypse is easy-going, well written, and solidly reasoned-and lively in the way it interweaves Biblical analysis, Zen literature, and Western philosophy and sociology with popular culture and deep wisdom. I am delighted to greet this important and meaningful work.” —from the foreword Robert A.F. Thurman, author of Why the Dalai Lama Matters
Timely and audacious, Buddha at the Apocalypse challenges us to look directly at the devastating assumptions underlying the very mechanisms of the modern world-and offers a clarion call to awaken from a pervasive culture of destruction into a natural, sustainable, and sane peace.
“This book helped me to see Western culture more clearly, and inspired me to rebel against the apocalyptic paradigm with renewed vigor.” —Noah Levine, author of Dharma Punx
