Our Only Home: A Climate Appeal to the World in Tara Hall
April 29 @ 1:30 pm - 4:00 pm
The first of a series of talks and discussions at Buddha House in the “Healthy Body, Healthy Mind and Healthy Planet” series
Everyone welcome to join Janet and Lyndy at Buddha House to discuss The Dalai Lama’s Climate Appeal to the World ( HH the XIV Dalai Lama with Alt, F. (2019) Our only Home : a climate appeal to the world . Bloomsbury. London ).
“ Buddha would be Green – Me too, I am Green
Buddha was born as his mother leaned against a tree for support. He attained Enlightenment seated beneath a tree , and passed away as trees stood witness overhead. Were Buddha to return to our world, therefore, he would certainly be connected to the campaign to protect the environment…This beautiful blue planet is our only home…” ( HH , 2019: 31)
“The dramatic decrease in biodiversity must be given top priority.” ( HH , 2019:32)
“ More and more people understand that the survival of humanity is at stake. ….” HH( 2019:33).
“ We need a revolution of compassion based on warm-heartedness ….” ( HH, 2019:35).
“ I really appreciate Gretha Thunberg’s efforts ….” (His Holiness, 2019:67”)
We begin with a prayer led by Lyndy followed by a reading and reflection on ways we can support this plea, ending with a prayer and dedication.
Please join us for afternoon tea for further discussion.
