Source: The New York Times

On July 12, 1998, the New York Times Sunday Book Review section included an article about Robert Thurman’s book, Inner Revolution: Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Real Happiness. Thurman is a professor in Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Studies at Columbia University. Rev. Gomes writes that in this book, Thurman asserts that “America is the place and that this is the time in which the Buddha’s vision may have its most opportune moment” for an “exhausted culture eager to go from “me” to meaning.”
