    Sounds like a nice anthology. I’ve long thought that Gotama’s general ethical teaching, perhaps particularly about character and relations with others, is what’s most relevant for engaged Buddhists & others today, more relevant than specific comments on politics & society. And that seems to put the emphasis in the same place.
