|Title||For the Sake of Peace: A Buddhist Perspective for the 21st Century -- Summary|
|Description||This is a review of For the Sake of Peace, by Daisaku Ikeda. "Based on 20 years of university lectures and proposals to the United Nations, this book addresses the issue of peace from the Buddhist perspective of compassion, interconnectedness of all life, and absolute respect for human life. Informed by the teachings of Nichiren, the 13th-century Japanese Buddhist teacher and reformer, this book considers peace from various angles, including economics, the environment, disarmament, religion, and culture. Ikeda writes that nothing is more precious than peace, and asserts that through self-mastery, dialogue, and belief in the sovereignty of the people, the world may come to know a peaceful existence." - Editorial Reviews|
