Featuring: Haiyun Jimeng
Location: The Bookworm
Event Code: BW23B
Haiyun Jimeng quit his official post in Taiwan’s Ministry of Economic Affairs to work in the “spiritual economy.” He believes that through spirituality, human beings can save the environment – and the world. Of his many books, Our Only Choice: A New Vision for the Long-Term Survival of Humanity and the Earth has been translated into English, and describes how the teachings of Buddha can help us formulate a set of “core values,” which in turn lead to an “economics of spirituality with which to transform economic growth into growth in happiness; material development into educational and mental development; and the plundering of natural resources into spiritual development.”
This event will be in Chinese with English interpretation.
