Wisdom Publications,second edition. Awarded the Frederick J. Brings the three traditions together in a synthesis receptive to the insights of each regarding the fundamental issues of life and death, and death-in-life. The Buddhist denial of a substantial self—in contemporary terms, that the sense of “self” is a psychological construct—implies that our basic fear is not death but nonbeing.

Also available for Kindle. The Nonduality of Life and Death. A New Buddhist Path: Translated into German and Spanish.

Loy addresses head-on the most pressing issues of Buddhist philosophy in our davif. What is the meaning of enlightenment–is it an escape from the world, or is it a form of psychological healing?

How can one reconcile modern scientific theory with ancient religious teachings? What is our role in the universe?

Gran Despertar: Una Teoria Social Budista, El

Loy shows us that neither Buddhism nor secular society by itself is sufficient to answer these questions. Instead, he investigates the davi intersections of the two.

Through this exchange, he uncovers a new Buddhist way, one that is faithful to the important traditions of Buddhism but compatible with modernity. This way, we can see the world as it is truly is, realize our indivisibility from it, and learn that the world’s problems are our problems. This is a new path for a new world.

Can Corporations Become Enlightened? A Buddhist History of the West: Not a history of Buddhism in the West but a Buddhist perspective on the development of Western civilization. The Buddhist claim that the sense of self is haunted by a sense of lack has important ggan implications, affecting the ways that for example freedom, progress, science, economic and political development have been understood and pursued.


Toward a Buddhist Perspective. The Renaissance of Lack. The Lack of Modernity. Yale University Press, A softcover edition was published by Humanities Press in A German language edition was published as Nondualitat by Kruger Verlag in A Spanish language edition was published as No-dualidad by Kairos Press in Focuses on the nonduality of subject and object in Buddhism, Vedanta, and Taoism, with reference to Western thinkers including Wittgenstein, Heidegger and William Blake.

The main argument is that these three Asian systems may be understood as different attempts to describe the same experience. Ultimately it becomes difficult to distinguish a formless Being Brahman from a formless nonbeing shunyata. Buddhism seems to be a more phenomenological description of nonduality, Vedanta a more metaphysical account.
