Dekila Chungyalpa is a conservation scientist and director of a faith-based, climate-change initiative. In this podcast, she shares how Buddhist teachings on emptiness, impermanence, non-attachment, and compassion sustain her.
In this episode of Tricycle Talks, Chungyalpa shares with Tricycle’s editor James Shaheen how she’s come to integrate her commitments to science and faith, deal with climate deniers, and head the Loka Initiative, a climate-change outreach program that empowers and uplifts religious communities. In the face of so much eco-anxiety, climate distress, and doom and gloom, it is ultimately Buddhist teachings on emptiness, impermanence, non-attachment, and compassion, she says, that sustain her.
