Format: Paperback
In the course of preparing to write a book, I found I had to consider intersections of science, Buddhism, Taoism, and Judeo-Christian beliefs. Then I came across this gem. It made my task seem small. Imagine hundreds of religions (about 500, if I recall correctly) all seeking to find common cause!

The Buddhists caused a temporary fuss. They insisted they did not have to believe in a supreme being. However, everyone made it over that bump in the road. They all agreed with principles that were progressive for the time. They'd be progressive for our time if governments implemented them.

It's customary, with regard to religions at least, for a belief system to profess peace, only to have some government use it to aid its latest war. Now that I think of it, that's been the history of governments' use of science. At least it has been since Leonardo tried to please his patron.

I believe you'll find it interesting to read the statement in this book and the bit of history about writing it. It spells out some of the cultural change they all thought was necessary. I found it encouraging that all those diverse people arrived at common conclusions. Their agreements are not abstract, but quite specific and clearly stated. If only those who "didn't come to Washington to compromise" could do that in the United States congress.

I'd have given the book a top rating if it had not made me sad to think of the obvious principles that should be given universal agreement, but instead are ignored.

Kung is an interesting fellow. This book started my rewarding search to know him better.
