Cultivating Compassion: Going Beyond Crises

The book Cultivating Compassion: Going Beyond Crises presents different approaches that aim to advance our understanding of the questions and dilemmas posed by current global crises and the cultivation of compassion. The book’s authors and editors explore how compassion can alleviate the suffering of climate change, the Covid-19 Pandemic, war, ever-rising inequalities, and other global challenges.

Studies on Humanistic Buddhism

Studies on Humanistic Buddhism is a journal with articles translated from Chinese by a worldwide team of volunteer translators, editors, and proofreaderes. We also publish original English articles, commentaries, and student papers. The aim of the journal is to provide access to articles on Humanistic Buddhism in english for scholars. The journal is a result of a unique translation process that employs an online work workflow with a cloud-based glossary. Hard copies of the journal are published by Fo Guang Shan Institute of Humanistic Buddhism and the Nan Tien Institute of Higher Learning.

Applied Research Projects

The Bibliography Visualiser Project

The NTI Visualiser spurned from the first thematic academic bibliography on Humanistic Buddhism. The idea of allowing researchers to not only build their own bibliography, but further explore and quickly grasp its content was an attempt to allow a more dynamic approach to the Humanistic Buddhism Bibliography’s content.

Applied Research Projects

NTI Ethos Project

The intention of this resource is to identify the pathways to integrate the Buddhist ethics positioning (called Buddhist Ethos), of NTI, into the Institute’s day to day life and operations. It can also be used as a framework for other organisations seeking to integrate Buddhist ethics into their workplaces and projects.
