MAKING THE WORLD WE WANT

by | Read by Robert Thurman

Philosophy & Religion • 5 hrs. • Audio Program • ©

An ordained Buddhist monk and scholar, Thurman explains how Buddhism is now poised to revolutionize the course of humanity. In Thurman's view, mindful communities can continue to spark inner revolutions, and compassion and non-duality will lead to social action. He calls Buddha's "quiet revolution" a "total reorientation of the habits of individuals and entire societies." In this freewheeling presentation, laced with humor and presented before a live audience, Thurman rambles a bit but regains his focus when he leads meditations and takes questions from the audience, although, unfortunately, he does not repeat the questions, which the listener cannot hear. His voice--in tone, cadence and range--reminds me of Robin Williams's voice. P.B.J. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
