Bhante Vimalaramsi, the first American representative to the World Buddhist Conference in Japan, has a unique perspective on the Buddha's teaching that life is suffering. He agrees that life is usually a suffering experience, but that it can be whatever we make it. He teaches that the root cause of our unhappiness is a continual stress over which we have control - and a method to release that tension, creating unparalleled joy.
Twice nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize, one of the world's leading systems theorists, founder and president of two international think tanks, and the author of 84 books, Ervin Laszlo is a visionary like no other. In his talk at East West he discussed his latest book, WorldShift 2012 - an overview of the practical ways we can transform our current crises into a process of planetary renewal. Contributors to his book include the Dalai Lama, Eckhart Tolle, Ken Wilber, Muhammed Yunus, Vaclav Havel, Deepak Chopra, Mikhail Gorbachev and others.
