Now more than ever before we need a genuine greening of the mind. We are facing climate change and an environmental crisis that affects all beings. This requires an inner and outer transformation to meet the challenges of our time. To hear the earth’s cry, is to realise there is no separation between our subjectivity and the dark rich earth. The green Buddha mind is a consciousness that recognises it’s own seamless totality with all beings.
The experience and understanding of interconnectedness informs and changes our sense of guardianship and responsibility to this precious green planet of ours.
