Sample Quotes

“Future generations, and the other species that share the biosphere with us, have no voice to ask for our compassion, wisdom, and leadership. We must listen to their silence. We must be their voice, too, and act on their behalf.” – Dharma Teachers Collective, A Buddhist Declaration on Climate Change

“Mindfulness must be engaged. Once there is seeing, there must be acting. Otherwise, what’s the use of seeing?” – Thich Nhat Hanh, Peace Is Every Step: The Path of Mindfulness in Everyday Life

“Each of us must take complete responsibility for the world, as if the world’s fate depended on our words and actions. Whether we know it or not, it does.” – Hozan Alan Senauke, from A Buddhist Response to the Climate Emergency

“A sacred activist is someone who knows that the world’s profound crisis is challenging everyone to act from our deepest compassion and wisdom, and who is committed to ‘being’, in the face of growing chaos, suffering, and violence. In Shambhala terminology we call this the way of warriorship.” – Acharya Marty Janowitz, A Call for Meditation in Action on Climate Change

“…to fight back peacefully, in love and compassion for all of life, making a shared commitment to a sustainable future…will require a massive display of resistance from the American people.” – Ven. Bhikkhu Bodhi, Mobilizing on Behalf of Life

Sample text for email/community newsletter

We have the opportunity to join Buddhist and Mindfulness communities in Washington DC and around the world as we come together on April 29 in Washington DC and at sister marches around the world as part of the People’s Climate Mobilization. One Earth Sangha and its partners are gathering the Buddhist presence at these events. They will also launch a month of deepening engagement in April with a live webinar on April 2nd featuring zen teacher and socially engaged Buddhism leader, Hozan Alan Senauke.

We can see these events as a chance to initiate or confirm our communities’ sustained engagement in the cause of environmental health and justice. Together we can bring the gifts of mindfulness and the Dharma and join with others in calling for the viability, dignity and freedom of all beings, near and far, born and yet to be born.

“Future generations, and the other species that share the biosphere with us, have no voice to ask for our compassion, wisdom, and leadership. We must listen to their silence. We must be their voice, too, and act on their behalf.”A Buddhist Declaration on Climate Change

Learn more about the Buddhist presence at these events and stay up to date on the One Earth Sangha event page. Details will also be posted on the Facebook page for this event.

This is a wonderful opportunity to heed the call to engage, and, in keeping with the Buddhist Declaration on Climate Change, to give voice to all beings, embodying fierce compassion as a global community of Buddhists and spiritual practitioners.
