To many Westerners, the most appealing teachings of the Buddhist tradition pertain to ethics. Many readers have drawn inspiration from Buddhism's emphasis on compassion, nonviolence, and tolerance, its concern for animals, and its models of virtue and self-cultivation. There has been, however, controversy and confusion about which Western ethical theories resemble Buddhist views and in what respects. In this book, Charles Goodman illuminates the relations between Buddhist concepts and Western ethical theories. Every version of Buddhist ethics, says Goodman, takes the welfare of sentient beings to be the only source of moral obligations. Buddhist ethics can thus be said to be based on compassion in the sense of a motivation to pursue the welfare of others. On this interpretation, the fundamental basis of the various forms of Buddhist ethics is the same as that of the welfarist members of the family of ethical theories that analytic philosophers call 'consequentialism.' Goodman uses this hypothesis to illuminate a variety of questions. He examines the three types of compassion practiced in Buddhism and argues for their implications for important issues in applied ethics, especially the justification of punishment and the question of equality.

The Alice Walker Collection

During a public dialogue with a master Buddhist teacher, Pema Chodron, I mentioned the joy of the “disappearing act.” I said that it was probably what being dead would be like, and that you'd be surprised how much you enjoyed it.

A Piece of Peace is an autobiographical account of one woman's unique struggle with a near-fatal disease. In 2018, Sweta had already earned acclaim from having written a dozen successful books and for her work toward amplifying women's voices. Suddenly overtaken with a massive health crisis, she entered a fight for her life that lasted more than six months. Her journey back to wellness through mindfulness and Ayurvedic healing show us both the true resilience of the human spirit as well as laying out a practical day-by-day plan that anyone can build on to restore health and recover from chronic health losses. Sweta shares her vulnerabilities, makes recommendations, interviews experts, and reminds us all that how we respond to a situation determines our path in life. Additionally, you'll learn about: • The power of mindful living. • The impact of finding and owning your voice on your well-being. • A reminder about the role of wellness in the lives of writers & creative professionals. • Essays and stories on coping with the pandemic, mindfulness, Ayurveda, meditation, resilience, productivity, and more. • Tips, tricks, wisdom all packed neatly with compassion to help you navigate life no matter what's thrown at you. "A Piece of Peace is a great combination of personal experience and street-smart advice including some very potent lifestyle changes. It then segues into very practical tips to stay healthy, physically and mentally, during the pandemic and culminates in sage advice to authors." --Nitin P, Ron, MD, Speaker, Expedition Leader, and Assistant Professor of Clinical Pediatrics "A Piece of Peace is a wonderful collection of Sweta's reflections on her journey to healing from chronic illness. Sweta's bravery and determination to heal is reflected in her words of wisdom, which I am sure many will find empowering. I loved reading this easy-to-follow guide, it is beautifully honest and packed with tips for every day. -- Mita Mistry Columnist, mindfulness-based cognitive therapist and acupuncturist "What did Sweta Vikram do after a miraculous recovery from near death? She wrote this healing guide to long term health for your creative mind, body and soul. Linger a while with her book and let your body unwind and find peace of mind - the keys to setting your creative soul free." ---Cauvery Madhavan, Author of The Tainted "A Piece of Peace by Sweta Vikram is the book every woman needs to have by her bedside.

This book explores the wise and conscious use of spiritual resources within counselling and psychotherapy. Written by veteran clinicians from different spiritual perspectives, and from various therapeutic schools of thought, this book provides a broad view of how the spiritual is present within therapeutic practice. The work of counselling and psychotherapy is increasingly seeking to ground its efforts within the richness of spiritual traditions. One of the surprising developments of the contemporary psychotherapeutic scene is a growing reliance on both hard, objective sciences - such as, for example, neurology or Genetics - whilst at the same time engaging very subjective, "soft" sciences - such as states of consciousness studies, psychology of religion, clinical or Pastoral Theology, and the over-arching tasks of meaning-making. Written by and for clinicians who are also teachers in the field, this collection offers a variety of viewpoints in terms of the diverse spiritual traditions they draw from, theoretical sources that guide and inform them, or the spiritual applications they bring to their work. This book was published as a special issue of the Journal of Spirituality in Mental Health.

fascinating guide to religion and its place in the world today. In God Is Not One, bestselling author Stephen Prothero makes a fresh and provocative argument that, contrary to popular understanding, all religions are not simply ''different paths to the same God.'' Instead, he shows that the differences between the major religions are far greater than we think: they each ask different questions, tackle different problems, and aim at different goals. God Is Not One highlights the unique aspects of the world's major religions, with chapters on Islam, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Yoruba religion, Judaism, Daoism and atheism. Lucid and compelling, God Is Not One offers a new understanding of religion for the twenty-first century.
