The sangha presence at the Earth StrikeOn Wed, 2 October, 2019 - 16:20
On the 20th September there was a global ‘earth strike’ to demonstrate about human-caused global warming. The climate strikes certainly made world headlines, and Greta Thunberg’s speech to the UN keeps up the pressure for ecological action on governments, business and individuals - including us! It’s hard to say what the effect of our sangha presence is - but getting out there on the streets where a lot of radical energy is; meditating and being seen; modelling love and awareness as a response; visibly demonstrating that Buddhists care about this planet - the effects can only be good.
