Group Description

This list was started as a communications vehicle for the INEB (International Network of Engaged Buddhists) conference in Sri Lanka in March 1999. Since that time it has evolved to be the primary email list for the group. This list is open to everyone interested in Engaged Buddhism. The list is un-moderated but we ask that posts be on topic and relate to the Engaged Buddhist community.

INEB began in February of 1989 in Siam (Thailand) at a conference of 36 concerned clergy and laypeople from 11 countries. The goals set by this group were to develop the perspective of engaged Buddhism, to promote inter-Buddhist and inter-religious understanding and cooperation, to provide information on Buddhist and other socially active groups, and to develop workshops and training in INEB's areas of concern. Since then, the network has expanded dramatically to include more than 400 members and local or regional working groups in 33 countries. Out of this diversity an evolving understanding of engaged Buddhism has emerged which integrates the practice of Buddhism with social action for a healthy, just, and peaceful world. This commitment to global community based on the universal truths of wisdom and compassion guides all of our activities.
