Buddhist Ethics and Wisdom Meet Contemporary Culture

Maitreya Buddha: Liberation on Seeing

What does Buddhism, and Tibetan Buddhism in particular, have to say about controversial contemporary issues? Can ancient Buddhist wisdom really help us thrive in today's complicated world? How does Buddhist meditation help us live happier, saner lives? Do Buddhist ethics have relevance today? 

Buddhist masters have profound responses to modern-day dilemmas. BoBuReview was created by Buddhist writer and meditation student Paki S. Wright (PakiSWright.com) to share their wit and wisdom, help us make more sense of our modern-day lives, reduce unnecessary suffering, and create more happiness.

Can we make life better for all sentient beings, including ourselves? Buddhism says Yes. Because it all starts in our own hearts and minds. 

Here's BoBuReview's idea of a great bumper-sticker:  

If you want to change your world,
mind your own mindstream.

 
"Paki, I was very happy to see the Review . . . if there were no bridge from bohemianism to spiritual practice I would not be living in an ashram and meditating today! Indeed, the step from dissatisfaction with things-as-they-are (or were) here in the industrial West through social change activism to spiritual growth is to my mind the development path for the vast majority of us sentient beings. . . many do not get beyond the second step (as Gandhi said of his colleagues, 'I was on the train to Rishikesh but they got off at Delhi').

"What the Review does is help them short-circuit that breakdown and get on with the journey.  Thanks and congratulations!" -- Michael Nagler, American Book Award-winner "The Search for a Nonviolent Future" 

"Lively, thoughtful essays" -- Christi Cox, Snow Lion
