In Mandala January-June 2018 we explore what Buddhism offers the world in times of global difficulties to help pacify suffering and bring about peace. In this issue, His Holiness the Dalai Lama encourages Buddhists to share the wisdom and thinking of the Buddha and the Nalanda masters in secular ways; the Foundation for Developing Compassion and Wisdom offers snapshots of its activities around the world; and several FPMT centers, projects, and services share their approaches to being compassionate world citizens. We also take an in-depth look at the Inner Job Description, a mindfulness practice tool designed to help those offering service or working in any job transform their efforts into profound, powerful Dharma practice. Plus, teachings from Lama Yeshe, Lama Zopa Rinpoche, new photos, interviews, and much more!
