Abstract:

"Social action is not just a natural and spontaneous offshoot of Zen practice, according to Roshi Bernie Glassman, it's the inevitable outcome of the experience of oneness, of realizing that we're One Body. "True realization directly manifests in the realm of action," Glassman writes. "Instead of living in the realm of ideas and feelings about whatever is happening, we live in the realm of action." His commentaries presented here on two classic Buddhist texts - The Heart Sutra and The Identity of Relative and Absolute - as well as on the Bodhisattva Precepts, show how profoundly these early Buddhist teachings can awaken and inspire us to make peace with ourselves, in our communities, and in our universe." "The author's commentaries are based on workshops he gave as Abbot of the Zen Community of New York and contain the foundation for his groundbreaking Greyston model for social change that he wrote about in his Instructions to the Cook: A Zen Master's Lessons on Living a Life That Matters."--BOOK JACKET.
