Every once in a while a profound and beautiful book comes along that speaks for all time and also to our specific time. The Buddha and the Terrorist is such a book. "There is a virus buried deep in all violence that is contagious, that inspires an equally brutal and mindless response. You can choose not to be part of the destructive cycle, and that choice not to participate is the first step toward peace. We can begin to cultivate small acts of compassion right now." -from the foreword by Thomas MooreKumar, Satish is the author of 'Buddha And the Terrorist ', published 2006 under ISBN 9781565125209 and ISBN 1565125207.
