In personal and original essays, Jan Willis, Alice Walker, Maxine Hong Kingston, Charles Johnson, Thich Nhat Hanh, and others reveal the connections between spiritual practice and the liberation of all human beings. These essays by twenty-six Latino, Asian, Asian American, African American, and Native American Buddhist practitioners highlight how Buddhism can be an effective antidote to suffering and a vehicle for liberation.
