Non-dualism are the key ingredients of empathy and understanding, which are critical to the understanding (and ultimate conquest) of suffering. The paper analyzes David Loy's work in the "Great Awakening" and how he explains that the causes of all suffering are rooted in greed, ill-will and delusion. The paper shows how Loy specifically focuses on how Buddhist practice could be used to remedy contemporary problems like terrorism, poverty and deep ecology.

From the Paper:

"Similarly, Deep Ecology is the belief that we are the masters of this planet and that progress will overrun any problem we may encounter (Loy 187). Both of these problems hold at their core dualism. Poverty is dualism between humans, while Deep Ecology is dualism between humans and earth. This dualism enables greed, which is the true driving force behind the problems. The Buddhist solution is again to simply dissolve the separation."
