    schema:description ""Before this book was published, little was known about the role of Buddhism in international aid work and disaster relief. Now for the first time, the eight case-studies in this volume document Buddhist-led aid and emergency-relief initiatives in a variety of northern and southern Asian countries. Some describe indigenous responses to regional disasters, while others are concerned with the delivery of assistance by international donors and aid foundations. Collectively they provide evidence of how Buddhist monks and laity are increasingly adopting new and unfamiliar roles as they engage with human problems in today's globalized world. I recommend this timely and relevant volume to anyone interested in engaged Buddhism or the practical application of Buddhist teachings."--Damien Keown, Professor Emeritus of Buddhist Ethics, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK." ;
