Spirituality and Ecology from a Buddhist Perspective: Engaged Buddhism Across Asia, By Somboon Chungprampree (with Jane Rasbash and Fletcher Harper)

Engaged Buddhism, a movement that applies Buddhist teachings and practices to a range of social issues, has produced Buddhist leaders and organizations who have made important contributions to the protection of the environment in Asia, and has elevated the visibility and importance of such efforts in Buddhist communities across Asia and beyond.
