Introduction to Engaged Buddhism

«In this timely text, Paul Fuller updates and revitalizes scholarship on the increasing proliferation of engaged Buddhist expressions across a global landscape. In addition to illuminating key themes, he advances the category beyond its normative liberal and progressive boundaries by arguing persuasively that ethnocentric forms of Buddhism are also engaged. Compelling and clearly written, An Introduction to Engaged Buddhism is a must-read for both scholars and practitioners of Engaged Buddhism.»

Ann Gleig, Associate Professor of Religion and Cultural Studies, University of Central Florida, USA

This textbook introduces and explores the ideas, practices and philosophy of engaged Buddhism. The movement holds that suffering is not just caused by the cravings of the mind, but also by political and social factors; therefore, engaged Buddhists ‘engage’ with social issues to achieve liberation.

Paul Fuller outlines the movement's origins and principles. He then offers a comprehensive analysis of the central themes and issues of engaged Buddhism, offering new insights into the formation of modern Buddhism. The range of issues covered includes politics, gender, environmentalism, identity, blasphemy and violence. These are illustrated by case studies and examples from a range of locations where Buddhism is practised. Discussion points and suggested further reading are provided at the end of each chapter, which will further enrich undergraduates' grasp of the topic.

«Paul Fuller articulates a broad definition of Engaged Buddhism, one that moves away from the assumption that Engaged Buddhist movements are always liberal/progressive and nonviolent. This more expansive definition represents a vital and needed development in the field.»
