In 2011 a group of American college students spent a month in India with His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa. Together they discussed topics ranging from food justice to gender identities to conflict resolution. The Karmapa’s teachings in this book are the product of those meetings. Here he shares his vision for bringing social and environmental action into daily life, on a scale we can realistically manage through the choices we make every day—what to buy, what to eat, and how to relate with the people we come across. We can change the world by just changing ourselves, he says, using our basic nobility as our primary resource.
