Tranquility for a Turbulent Planet by Monshu Koshin Ohtani.
The third book in a trilogy of publications by Monshu Koshin Ohtani, The Buddha's Gift to the World begins with an outline by the Gomonshu on Buddhism and society and a talk he presented to college students at Ritsumeikan University in Kyoto, Japan. Though times have changed, he acknowledges, the fundamental issues of life such as sickness and old age that we as human beings must all inevitably face and come to terms with have not changed. Buddhism can be the guiding light that helps us to receive whatever Life has in store. The book concludes with the Gomonshu's reflections on how Buddhist teachings can help bring about world peace by promoting mutual understanding among world religions. The Buddha's Gift to the World reaffirms that the Buddha-Dharma teachings are as relevent today as ever for addressing the very real and complex problems of our modern society and global community.
