Buddhism and society: restraint or engagement?
May 20th– 21st, 2017

This retreat considers the “engaged” facet of Buddhism. On one hand, monks and nuns vow not to serve certain people to the detriment of others, and the very idea of comparing leaders is rejected (Rājā sutta, Ud 2.2). On the other hand, the Buddha has given political and social advice, not nominatively but in connection with actions that reduce or increase suffering… So, restraint or engagement?
