As it explains, in this book, His Holiness “teaches how we can move from a merely intellectual understanding of interdependence to a fully lived experience of connection. By first seeing, then feeling, and finally living these connections, we can become more effective agents of social and ethical change.
The Karmapa shows us how gaining emotional awareness of our connectedness can fundamentally reshape the human race. He then guides us to action, showing step by step how we can change the way we use the earth’s resources and can continue to better our society. In clear language, the Karmapa draws connections between such seemingly far-flung issues as consumer culture, loneliness, animal protection, and self-reliance.”
The book was endorsed with wonderful praise from His Holiness the Dalai Lama, Chede-Meng Tan, Richard Davidson, Jonathan Rose (author of Well-Tempered City), Chief Arvol Looking Horse (head of the Sioux Nations and leading figure in Standing Rock), Professor Janet Gyatso from Harvard, John Stanley, Pema Chodron, Sharon Salzberg and Kichin Paley Ellison (Zen teacher and social activist).
