Buddhist principles e activism social

19-06-2016

Could the Buddha's message and example offer solutions to the numerous social and justice issues we face today? How does individual spiritual development contribute to society and the greater good? How is it possible to cultivate love and compassion in reaction to hatred and anger?

Professor Jan Willis shared her perspectives while recounting her own journey of growing up in the Jim Crow South and marching with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.  After briefly considering joining the militant Black Panther Party, she eventually chose the Buddhist path, meeting and studying for fifteen years with her root-guru, Lama Thubten Yeshe.

Professor Willis will share with us how Buddhism impacted her views about herself, social justice, and the role of personal healing in an angry and unjust society.
