Titled "Buddhism, Life & Death, & The American Dream", this new Facebook page is the creation of author James Hilgendorf, whose books, blogs and articles are exploring new relationships between the emergence of Buddhism in America and the emergence of a new and nascent global civilization.
In his latest book, "The Buddha and the Dream of America", he writes:
"A new spiritual civilization - beyond even age-old dreams, beyond anything we have yet imagined - is struggling to be born. It is here and now, in America. It grows from the wreckage of despair, of lost hope, of pollution, greed, injustice, hatred and war.
'It is the compassionate heart of the universe itself coming to fruition and bloom."
This new Facebook Page is meant to invite commentary on the ideas presented in his books and on this new Page, and also to invite original commentary that will add to a general discussion of the real meaning of America itself, and of the still unfulfilled promise of the Dream of America.
The Page is online at:
James Hilgendorf is the author of four books: "The Buddha and the Dream of America"; "Life & Death: A Buddhist Perspective";
