From Ali to Gandhi, Dylan to Thoreau -- and from Gertrude Stein to Mother Theresa -- Faces of Compassion introduces us to enlightened beings, the bodhisattvas of Buddhist lore. They''re not otherworldly gods with superhuman qualities, but shining examples of our own highest potential. Zen teacher and scholar Taigen Dan Leighton takes us through the ages to meet the people who have shaped history and society with their compassion and wisdom. Faces of Compassion emphasizes the universality of spiritual ideals, and the power each of us has to change our world. Printed Pages: 352.
