Why Buddhist News?
To be as close as possible to the needs of its contemporaries. More and more people today think about their daily way of life, their relationships with others and their place in society and the world, relying, sometimes without knowing them well, on the humanist and pragmatic values of Buddhism: altruism, compassion, benevolence, respect for the environment, knowledge of the spirit, meditation, respect for animal rights.
Buddhist News supports them and accompanies this approach which is based in particular on two fundamental principles: we are all connected and everything is impermanent, therefore constantly evolving. His articles, interviews, reports, in France and abroad, by showing other life experiences and realities, more united innovative models of society, help each reader to build a supported personal reflection and to get as close as possible to its truth, in conscience and in responsibility.
A modern Buddhism
At a time when the younger generations want more equity and social justice, more peaceful working conditions, a less polluted planet, safeguarding biodiversity and promoting better care for the elderly, it is urgent to work together for these changes.
In what way is Buddhist philosophy, whose values find a growing echo in our societies, a modern way of thinking, adapted to a time of constant and accelerated change? Buddhist News answers this question by offering innovative lines of thought.
