For the Earth - BAM! 2020 (The Dharma Toolkit, Episode 28)On Fri, 29 May, 2020 - 12:59
This year’s Buddhist Action Month (BAM!) - happening around the world throughout June - is about to kick off. The theme is “For the Earth” - and here on the Dharma Toolkit we’ll be looking at the intersection between urgent human issues like climate change, economic inequality and social justice.
The poetic version of this, rooted in personal and community practice, is that we have a perfect opportunity to speak up for the many beings without voices with whom we share our world. Which is also speaking up for our own future as a species. If we want to tell a new and better story about our possible future on the earth, this is the moment.
From the wild flower meadows of Vancouver Island to the slums of India and Nepal, our guests bring their steady, quiet passion and experience for work that saves lives and looks to save the environment. For all our sakes, for the earth.
BAM! is presented in conjunction with the Network of Buddhist Organisations. Check out the online events taking place online throughout the month. And get involved in your own local community!
