Hooked! Buddhist Writings on Greed, Desire & the Urge to Consume
Hooked! Buddhist Writings on Greed, Desire & the Urge to Consume, edited by Stephanie Kaza, from Shambhala Publications, ISBN 1590301722. Pema Chodron, Thubten Chodron, Joseph Goldstein, Rita Gross, and other prominent Buddhist teachers explore our seemingly endless drive to buy and acquire—and offer practical ways to combat consumerism on a personal and global level. Craving and attachment, how they arise and how to free ourselves from them are central themes of Buddhist thought. The writings in this volume, most of which have never been published, offer fresh perspectives to our society's tendency to believe that having more will make us happier.
