Choose life : a dialogue by Arnold Toynbee( Book )

26 editions published between 1976 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 1,676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topics discussed in this book are of very diverse kinds. Some of them are urgent concern at the present time, but some of them are issues of perennial importance that have been pondered and discussed by human beings ever since the unknown date at which our ancestors first awoke to consciousness. It seems probable that these perennial questions will continue to be debated so long as mankind survives in the psychosomatic form in which we exist in our material environment, that is to say, in the biosphere that covers the planet earth
The living Buddha : an interpretive biography by Daisaku Ikeda( Book )

72 editions published between 1973 and 2012 in 8 languages and held by 1,119 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Unlike most other major religions, Buddhism depends upon neither divine revelation nor an incarnation of God for its authenticity. Shakyamuni, the Buddha or "Enlightened One," was a man who through his own efforts attained enlightenment as to the essential nature of existence."--Back cover

The flower of Chinese Buddhism by Daisaku Ikeda( Book )

17 editions published between 1976 and 2012 in English and held by 499 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Beginning with the introduction of the religion into China, this chronicle depicts the evolution of Buddhism. The career and achievements of the great Kumarajiva are investigated, exploring the famed philosophical treatises that form the core of East Asian Buddhist literature. Providing a useful and accessible introduction to the influential Tien-t'ai school of Buddhism in Japan as well as the teachings of the 13th-century monk Nichiren, this examination places special emphasis on the faith of the Lotus Sutra and the major works of masters such as Hui-su, Chih-i, and Chanjan. From the early tr
A quest for global peace : Rotblat and Ikeda on war, ethics, and the nuclear threat by Joseph Rotblat( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This series of dialogues between two leading ethical thinkers brings together the courage and humanity of Rotblat with the spiritual wisdom and global visionary outlook of Daisaku Ikeda, the leader of the world's largest and most influential lay Buddhist organisation. Together they reflect on fundamental issues of war and peace, the ethics of nuclear deterrence and the trajectory of Joseph Rotblat's career, from the Manhattan Project to the Pugwash Conferences and his Nobel Brize."--Jacket
New horizons in eastern humanism : Buddhism, Confucianism and the quest for global peace by Weiming Tu( Book )

15 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"China now attracts global attention and headlines that are directly proportionate to its increasing economic and geopolitical power. But for several millennia the philosophy that has guided and shaped the soul of China is not modern Communism, or even new forms of capitalism, but rather Confucianism. And one of the most striking phenomena relating to China's ascendancy on the world stage is a burgeoning interest, throughout Asia and beyond, in the humanistic culture and value-system that underlie Chinese politics and finance: particularly the complex, multi-layered and sophisticated thought of Confucius as passed on in the Analects. In this stimulating and wide-ranging conversation, two leading thinkers from the Confucian and Mahayana Buddhist traditions explore the timely relevance of rejuvenated Confucian ethics to some of the most urgent issues in the modern world, including: Sino-Japanese-US relations; the transformation of society through education and dialogue; and the role of world religions in promoting human happiness and flourishing. Assessing fascinating correspondences between the Confucian and Buddhist world-views, and discussing such thinkers as Mencius, Nichiren, Zhang Zai, Spinoza, Gandhi, Max Weber, Levinas, Tang Junyi, and Habermas, the interlocutors commit themselves to a view of spirituality and religion that, without blurring cultural difference, is focused above all on the 'universal heart': on a notion of harmony between people and nature that leads finally to peace and to a hopeful future for all humanity."--Page 4 of cover
The persistence of religion : comparative perspectives on modern spirituality by Harvey Cox( Book )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the nineteenth century, Nietzsche famously announced that God was dead. In the twentieth century, an increasing reliance on science and technology led to a widespread rejection of belief on the grounds of its irrationality. Yet for all the skepticism directed towards it, religion has not died. In fact, the opposite has occurred: it has persisted and proliferated." "In this wide-ranging dialogue, two leading commentators on religion address - from their different but complementary traditions of Christianity and Buddhism - the continuing appeal of spirituality to people eager to explore fundamental questions of meaning and identity. The authors indicate that science, for all the benefits it has conferred, has limits of explanation. It may be able to show how, but not necessarily why."--Jacket

Moral lessons of twentieth century by Mikhail Sergeevich Gorbachev( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mikhail Gorbachev and Daisaku Ikeda are contemporaries raised in different cultures: Gorbachev is a statesman whose origins are the Marx-inspired world of Communism, while Ikeda is a Buddhist inspired by the thirteenth century Japanese sage, Nichiren. Moral Lessons of the Twentieth Century emerged from a series of conversations between these two men. Together they explore their experiences of life amidst the turmoil of the twentieth century and together they search for a common ethical basis for future development. They conclude that values are born of culture and that peace, progress and social justice can only be achieved through sincere communication and cultural exchange. As the new century begins, they have sought to turn the spotlight on the challenges which face humanity. The book is a call for dialogue in pursuit of values that bridge culture and time."--Jacket
Soka education : a Buddhist vision for teachers, students, and parents by Daisaku Ikeda( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book focuses on why education today is failing the individual and society and what is needed to create a new and compassionate civilization in the world. Soka (the Japanese word for "value creating") education was first developed in early twentieth-century Japan. It asserts that the purpose of education must be the lifelong happiness of the learners - that the happiness of the learner and the peace and prosperity of society are deeply connected.--From book jacket
