Buddhist Approaches to Just Peace

Rev. Kosho Finch (he/him)
*Special Zoom-only Worship Service*
The Buddha’s teaching is often regarded as inward looking practice, disconnected from world affairs and concerns. However since its inception it has taken a quiet role in guiding societies and leaders to finding alternatives to past forms of government and encouraging peace among people. In this talk Rev. Finch will survey from ancient times to modern social justice movements influenced by Buddhist thought, and share how the Buddhist teaching is uniquely positioned to assist us in achieving just peace for our communities.
