Description
 
Discussing the core, shared values of Hinduism and Buddhism, the authors examine international movements aimed at the development and protection of human rights, the elimination of nuclear weapons, and the creation of international legal frameworks to punish war crimes and crimes against humanity. The expansive dialogue demonstrates that it is but a short leap — or no leap at all — from the personal practice of religion to resolute support for the emerging norms and institutions of global civil society. Readers, religious or not, will come away with a powerful sense of hope for the shared global future.

Daisaku Ikeda is founder and president of the Soka Gakkai Intenational, a lay Buddhist organization with more than twelve million members worldwide. He has written and lectured widely on Buddhism, humanism, and global ethics.

Ved Nanda
is a law professor, the honorary president of the World Jurist Association, and a member of the advisory council of the United States Institute of Human Rights. He lives in Denver, Colorado.
