The Individual and the World Today

by Sangharakshita

With a number of modern trends submerging the individual in ever larger group situations, Sangharakshita traces how this can lead to frustration and a sense of powerlessness, asserting that only a spiritual solution such as Buddhism, can overcome the problem.

Talk given in 1979.

This talk is part of the series A New Buddhist Movement - the Meaning of the FWBO.
