The Karma of Mao: The Incompatibility of Socialism and Marxism with Buddhist Principles by awarding winning writer Susanna Godoy Lohse
Karl Marx and the Buddha set out to remedy the ills of the world, but each came up with very different solutions. On the surface, Marxism, and/or socialism seem to be equitable systems of government, but in the end, karma runs all over the Marxist dogma.

What Buddhist truth was exhibited clearly in the failed U.S. housing projects of the late 1960’s and 1970’s? What was the Buddha’s answer to remedying the world’s suffering verses that of Karl Marx? What was the magnificent obsession of the Buddha verses the undying obsession of Marxists? What precept of Karl Marx's own invention did he, himself, violate? These and numerous other questions are answered, including why it is that evil tyrants like Mao Zedong never seem to suffer immediate karmic consequences.
This well researched, thoughtful book is based on the teachings of Guatama Buddha and the writings of a Thirteenth Century Japanese Buddhist monk, Nichiren. Followers of Nichiren’s teaching include the founders of the Honda and Sony corporations.
The author has studied Nichiren Buddhism extensively, traveled to Japan, has maintained a devout daily Buddhist practice for over thirty-six years, and is also a is a refugee from communism.
