Buddha Touches the Earth

Deep Ecologist John Seed discusses his journey with Buddhism and how it led him into conservation and direct action and how he has sought to bring these two guiding elements together in his Buddhist teaching activities. John has been awarded the OAM for his services to conservation and the environment and in this talk he discusses some of his and the communities early work with rainforests and in particular, the success of the Franklin Dam protest.


This talk was given at the Sydney Zen Centre, Annandale, in February 2014
