Is peace a dream? A Utopian abstraction in a dehumanized, fragmented world, stockpiling all-devastating war machines? And can we possibly uphold the culture of peace amidst the growing cult of violence and blind consumerism, or in a climate of distrust, acrimony and intolerance? Embodying the presentations of an Asian Conference: 25-29 November 1996 in New Delhi on "The Culture of Peace: the Experiences and the Experiments", this volume addresses these and other kindred questions, with a rare insightfulness.Cutting across narrow compartmentalizations of disciplines, some of the best minds from Asian countries here share, with wider audiences, their concern for peace, situating their sensuous/intellectual/spiritual experiences in a culture of peace. Also identifying specificities in terms of peace-threatening issues, situations, geographical zones, the volume attempts to show how education, individual responsibility, philosophy, ethics, artistic creativity, collective spirituality, Gandhian non-violence, Sufis universal love, and the Buddhist message of compassion and equnimity can reinforce the culture of peace even in the face of despair.Printed Pages: 279.
