Beginning with the events immediately following the dark days after the death of Shakyamuni and continuing over a period of 1,000 years, this dynamic tome covers a vast and complex series of events and developments in the history of Buddhism.

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
Global civilization : a Buddhist-Islamic dialogue by Daisaku Ikeda( )

29 editions published between 2003 and 2015 in English and French and held by 1,313 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Global Civilization is addressed to students to Buddhism, Islam and international communication but most importantly to the general reader. It is a call for tolerance, for dialogue and ultimately for peace."--Jacket
New horizons in eastern humanism : Buddhism, Confucianism and the quest for global peace by Weiming Tu( )

14 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,172 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( )

12 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,106 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

104 editions published between 1900 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 1,071 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A quest for global peace : Rotblat and Ikeda on war, ethics, and the nuclear threat by Joseph Rotblat( )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2015 in English and held by 1,024 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."--Résumé de l'éditeur
Search for a new humanity : a dialogue between Josef Derbolav and Daisaku Ikeda by Josef Derbolav( Book )

5 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 1,012 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Together, Daisaku Ikeda and Josef Derbulav explore a wide range of topics, starting with a discussion of the tension between tradition and modernization in Japan and elsewhere. They compare humanism in East and West, and Buddhism and Christianity. Focusing on the crucial topic of education, they consider the roles of ethics and religion, and zero in on concrete problems and issues: education and political authority, absenteeism, violence in schools, and juvenile delinquency
A dialogue between East and West : looking to a human revolution by Ricardo Díez-Hochleitner( )

9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,011 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this provocative and wide-ranging dialogue, two of the most influential thinkers of recent times propose that only a "human revolution" - a fundamental shift in the hearts and minds of individuals - can stimulate a revolution in humanity's relationship with the planet. Such a planetary revolution first requires a transformation of moral and political leadership, and a hopeful orientation towards the children of the future rather than a misguided preoccupation with the short-termist policies of the present."--BOOK JACKET

Moral lessons of twentieth century Gorbachev and Ikeda on Buddhism and Communism by Mikhail Sergeevich Gorbachev( )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 896 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
