BAM! Free eBook this week is Saving the EarthOn Mon, 1 June, 2020 - 12:48
This week in Free the Dharma we’re offering a gem of a title in conjunction with Buddhist Action Month. The theme for BAM activities this year is ‘For the Earth’. Akuppa’s Saving the Earth: A Buddhist View will be available for free until 14 June. You can download it here.
We published this book 11 years ago, and now we know much more about biodiversity loss, extreme weather, and climate change. At the heart of this book is a timeless dialogue between Buddhist and environmental insights in the desire to end suffering.
Akuppa walks us through the possible responses of despair and powerlessness, complacency, anger and frustration. But his starting point is the need to be fully human and engage in a path of transformation alive to the world around us and full of joy. It will bring out the best in you.
