Are we living in “the most dangerous time ever in human history” (Noam Chomsky)? What does Buddhism offer that can help us understand and respond appropriately to the unprecedented challenges that face us now? The Buddha lived in a very different time, but Buddhist teachings have important social and ecological implications for our times. Perhaps the most important is the bodhisattva path. How shall we understand it today? In what ways might it need to be updated, to be the most helpful for us today?

Bio: David Loy is a Zen teacher in the Sanbo Zen lineage of Japanese Zen Buddhism and is a professor of Buddhist and comparative philosophy. His new book is A New Buddhist Path; Enlightenment, Evolution, and Ethics in the Modern World.
