"Environmental conservation must be the essence of our spiritual practice." ~His Holiness the 17th Karmapa. From Ladakh to Bhutan, Buddhist nuns and monks from 60 centers in the Himalayan region work on environmental projection. From cleaning up rivers, to installing solar panels, the nuns and monks approach the environment with a sense of compassion, recognizing the interdependence and inter-connectivity of all things. "...Compassion is a combination of the feeling and the action." ~Khenpo Drugyal, Tilokpur Nunnery Teacher.
