Ecological Perspectives in Buddhism is a contemporary study of Buddhist approach to ecology.
Its basic focus is to bring out the Buddhist solution to the problems and difficulties of human life arising basically due to degradation or imbalances in internal and external ecologies. It reflects upon a wider range of areas of contemporary relevance and importance such as the relationship between mental and physical aspects of human life, causal explanation of ecological issues in the light of Pratityasamutpadvad and Nagarjuna's concept of Shunyta , social and legal ecology, tantra and vipashyana aspects of Buddhist yoga, Buddhist approach to deep ecology and sallow ecology, Virtue ethics and Buddhism.
The anthology tries to present an in-depth analysis of Buddhist response to ecological concerns. It can be beneficial to the students and scholars of various disciplines of social science as well as lay men interested in the subject.
