Not Turning Away provides a history of the engaged Buddhism movement, an analysis of its underlying principles, and inspiring practical examples of real people's experiences in putting spiritual practice to the test on the personal, national, and global levels. The range of topics--from political oppression to prison work, disability, racism, poverty, nonviolence, forgiveness, the student-teacher relationship, and homelessness--demonstrates the applicability of Buddhist teaching to every concern of modern life.

About the Author
Praise For Not Turning Away: The Practice of Engaged Buddhism…
"Moon, longtime editor of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship's journal Turning Wheel , has anthologized some of the journal's best articles into the current book. . . . Moon's real brilliance is insisting on essays that eschew the hypothetical. Instead they describe frankly the intimate joys, humor, failures, even despair, of practicing engaged Buddhism."— Publishers Weekly
