Abstract

This paper proposes a mandala conception of security in the international quest for peace. It offers a holistic, universally-applicable, model for transcendence from national security interests to global security aspirations. Moreover, it draws attention to the neglected spiritual condition of international life, a condition which is beginning to be addressed by the 'greening' of global politics. Indeed, peace through security is as much a contemplative exercise as a constructional one.
