Ethical Wisdom of Asia

  • Thomas Menamparampil Archdiocese of Guwahati, Assam


Building a common ground between communities when there is a perceived sense of injustice between them is suggested here. It is imperative to add an ethical dimension to the discussion in the debates on justice. This paper is an invitation to understand the ethical wisdom of various communities, in this case particularly those of Asia, in order to build a better relationship between communities. The article offers an understanding of the ethical wisdom in Asia drawing insights from the major religious and spiritual practices and proposes a nuanced reflection which is not an evaluation of the respective merits of different religions, but an effort to consolidate the common ethical resources of humankind for the common good and for a better future.
