President of the Brazilian Academy of Letters for thirty-four years until his death in September 1993, Austregésilo de Athayde is best known as the South American champion of human rights. He played a major part in drafting the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights adopted in December 1948.
The dialogue opens with a discussion of the great guardians of human rights: Mahatma Gandhi, Martin Luther King Jr., Nelson Mandela, and others. Athayde recounts how the U.N. declaration came into being and his role in the process.
Ikeda spotlights the Buddhist ideas of mercy, freedom, and equality, and their potential to enrich the human rights movement. The preface to this volume was written and typed by Athayde himself a few weeks before he died in Rio de Janeiro at the age of ninety-four.
