Readers who are concerned about man-made climate change and the possibility of a Buddhist response to it may be interested in Bhikkhu Anālayo’s new book, Mindfully Facing Climate Change, available in paperback or free pdf format. Many of you will already have heard of Anālayo, through his several books on satipaṭṭhāna and Buddhist meditation. He now turns his attention to how a Buddhist practitioner can mindfully turn towards the sometimes overwhelming issue of climate change. He is also offering a free online lecture series on the theme, beginning on 6 January 2020. 

I am personally intensely grateful to Anālayo for his clear and direct response to the climate emergency, avoiding apocalyptic alarmism, but facing up to the dangers fully.
