<span>Today’s globalized society faces some of humanity’s most unprecedented social and environmental challenges. Presenting new and insightful approaches to a range of these challenges, the timely volume before you draws upon individual cases of exemplary leadership from the world’s Dharma traditions—Hinduism, Sikhism, Jainism, and Buddhism. The volume's authors refer to such exemplary leaders as “beacons of Dharma,” highlighting the ways in which each figure, via their inspirational life work, provide us with illuminating perspectives as we continue to confront cases of grave injustice and needless suffering in the world. <br><br>Taking on difficult contemporary issues such as climate change, racial and gender inequality, industrial agriculture and animal rights, fair access to healthcare and education, and other such pressing concerns, </span>
<span>Beacons of Dharma</span>
<span> offers a promising and much needed contribution to our global remedial discussions. Seeking to help solve and alleviate such social and environmental issues, each of the chapters in the volume invites contemplation, inspires action, and offers a freshly invigorating source of hope.</span>
<span>Beacons of Dharma</span>
<span> explores the inspirational life legacies and teachings of exemplary leaders from the Buddhist, Hindu, Jain and Sikh religious traditions. This book also insightfully connects each ‘beacon’ of focus to contemporary global issues of ecology, social justice, and the need for dedicated humanitarian service. </span>
