Book Launch: Why The Dalai Lama is a Socialist, Buddhism and the Compassionate Society. Readings and discussion with author Dr. Terry Gibbs, Wednesday, May 24th, 2017 at 7:00PM, Doctor Luke’s, 54 Prince St., Sydney
Why the Dalai Lama Is a Socialist is the first book to accessibly link Buddhism to socialist thought and social justice. As interest in Buddhism, particularly in the West, continues to increase dramatically and as the Dalai Lama remains one of the most high-profile religious figures in the world, this book provides a timely comparison of the complementary ideals of the Buddhist and socialist traditions. Gibbs is hopeful about our potential to create a more just society through collective effort, and Why the Dalai Lama Is a Socialist is grounded in his fundamental belief that everyday human activity makes a difference.
