Ecological Buddhism

A Buddhist Response to Global Warming

Mission Statements:

What we are experiencing in the degradation of the Earth, is a soul loss, a loss of meaning in life itself that calls for a recovery of a sense of the sacred. The Earth must be seen, not as a collection of objects for our use, but as a communion of subjects of which we are all a part. We are all part of a single community that will live or die together.
- Thomas Berry

When we recognise the virtues, the talent, the beauty of Mother Earth, something is born in us, some kind of connection—love is born. We want to be connected. That is the meaning of love, to be at one… You would do anything for the benefit of the Earth, and the Earth will do anything for your well-being.
- Thich Nhat Hanh

Our practice is not to clear up the mystery.  It is to make the mystery clear.
- Robert Aitken
