About this product
- DescriptionAura Glaser wrote this book to address an area that is virtually neglected in the field of psychology - the value and importance of compassion. Other books exploring Buddhism and psychology have focussed on what the Theravada school of Buddhism, which teaches personal liberation, can offer psychologically. A Call To Compassion works with Mahayana Buddhism, where practitioners commit to the liberation of all sentient beings, and compassion is central to attaining that goal. In her fascinating and exceptionally clear and concise review of the work of Freud, Jung, and others, Glaser shows how psychology had been ambivalent about the subject of compassion, and therefore has developed methodology for helping individuals cultivate this essential quality. As a remedy, Glaser introduces the Buddhist practice of lojong for developing love and compassion.
