Buddhist Ecology

Last week we heard from Brian Lesage about not taking things personally. This week, courtesy of Lorilee, we again hear from Brian and deepen our knowledge of the Buddha’s teachings about nature, in a talk he gave May 3rd this year “Being Aligned with the Dharma & Ecological Perception”.

It is prescient that over 2 millennia ago, the Buddha actually taught that one of the conditions “that prevents the rain from falling” is when we people are not aligned with the Dharma.  Whether we are aligned with nature or not, affects our planet. This is not surprising, given that we are not separate from, but part of, nature.
