David Loy
Professor, Writer, Zen teacher in the Sanbo Kyodan tradition of Japanese Zen Buddhism
 
Perhaps the highest ideal of the Western tradition has been to restructure our societies so that they are more socially just. The goal of the Buddhist tradition has been individual awakening: to see through the delusion of a separate self and realize one’s true nature. Today it has become obvious that we need both: not just because social and personal transformation complement each other, but because each project needs each other.
 
David Loy’s books include Nonduality, :and Transcendence, A Buddhist History of the West, The Great Awakening, The Dharma of Dragons and Daemons, Money Sex War Karma, and most recently The World Is Made of Stories. He co-edited A Buddhist Response to the Climate Emergency, and lectures nationally and internationally on the interaction between Buddhism and modernity, especially the social and ecological implications.
