A plea for the animals : the moral, philosophical, and evolutionary imperative to treat all beings with compassion by Matthieu Ricard( Book )

19 editions published between 2014 and 2017 in 6 languages and held by 354 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A powerful and wide-ranging indictment of the treatment of animals by humans--and an eloquent plea for animal rights. -- Amazon.com Every cow just wants to be happy. Every chicken just wants to be free. Every bear, dog, or mouse experiences sorrow and feels pain as intensely as any of us humans do. In a compelling appeal to reason and human kindness, Matthieu Ricard here takes the arguments from his best-sellers Altruism and Happiness to their logical conclusion: that compassion toward all beings, including our fellow animals, is a moral obligation and the direction toward which any enlightened society must aspire. He chronicles the appalling sufferings of the animals we eat, wear, and use for adornment or "entertainment," and submits every traditional justification for their exploitation to scientific evidence and moral scrutiny. What arises is an unambiguous and powerful ethical imperative for treating all of the animals with whom we share this planet with respect and compassion

24 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in French and Italian and held by 192 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Les échanges entre un père philosophe et un fils converti au bouddhisme qui travaille auprès du dalaï-lama. [SDM]
Buddhist Himalayas by Olivier Föllmi( Book )

11 editions published between 2002 and 2008 in English and French and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"'Terma' a Tibetan word meaning 'revealed treasures, ' applies to teachings hidden by ancient masters under rocks or in the earth to be found by future generations; it also applies to this massive volume of photographs and text. The Föllmis have spent 25 years living, working and travelling in the Himalayas with peasants, nomads, monks and spiritual masters; Ricard, a monk himself, has photographed life in Tibet and Nepal for 30 years and is the French translator for the Dalai Lama. Their giant, glossy photographs (often in two-page spreads) capture the vividness of Tibet's landscape and people in beautiful detail. The accompanying essays cover basic Buddhist concepts, schools of Tibetan Buddhism, Tibetan astrology and medicine as well as profiles of village, monastic and nomadic life. (The topic of meditation, however-a core practice of Buddhism-strangely warrants only a brief description in the glossary.) Chilling accounts of the Chinese invasion and occupation and its results (1,200,000 slaughtered, over 6,000 temples destroyed) convey the bleakness of the situation: this is a culture on the verge of extinction. Captions to the 185 color photographs come at the end of the book, and although going back and forth from photo to explanatory text can be bothersome, the stunningly rich images make the effort worthwhile. For anyone interested in Buddhism and the history and culture of Tibet, this book is a worthy object of meditation."--Publisher description
