Article in the Huffington Post, by our Sister Dedication: What We Can Learn From Buddhist Insights for the Climate Crisis

Thay’s insight and pioneering regarding our love and care for Mother Earth continues to manifest and inspire many. Here are a couple of lines from the article newly published in the Huffington Post:

“We are on course to self-destruction,” said Thich Nhat Hanh, speaking in France in June last year. “Many civilisations on Earth have been destroyed, because they could not live in harmony with nature. If we continue like this there is no doubt that our civilisation will be destroyed. Earth may take many millions of years to heal, to re-establish her balance and restore her beauty. For the Earth, it’s not a problem. But for us humans it’s a big problem. We will disappear from Earth.”

“We need more than just new technology to protect the planet,” he says. “We need real community and co-operation. We need to re-establish true communication — true communion — with ourselves, with the Earth, and with one another as children of the same mother.”
