(New environmenment projects are in the planning stages. Check back soon.)
Excerpt taken from HH karmapa's environment web site: www.khoryug.com/
For the past few years, His Holiness has called for environmental commitments from Kagyu monasteries, nunneries and centers, which has resulted in many forestation activities by monasteries. In the last year, he has chaired two conferences on environmental protection for Kagyu monasteries and nunneries, with a goal of building environmental management capacity within the Kagyu Sangha. He said that ultimately, he would like Tibetan Buddhist monasteries and nunneries to become leaders on environmental issues, working within their community to address threats such as deforestation, water scarcity, wildlife extinction, pollution and climate change. Monasteries will update their progress on the website and will manage much of the information available there.........
"Yet unlike humans, the earth is endlessly forgiving, His Holiness noted. When someone commits heinous crimes, such as murder, he is shunned and expelled from human society. Yet however much harm we do to her, the earth never banishes us. Despite all the damage we have done thus far, she has never given up on us, but continues to yield her resources to us with great generosity. We therefore all have a responsibility to consider what practical steps we can do to respond in kind to this great kindness that we receive from the earth".........
