Dear learned and accomplished Sangha members and members of Drikung Kagyu Dharma Centres,
In the 21st century, the natural environment that sustains all the creatures of the earth has undergone and continues to undergo incredible devastations to previously unheard of degree. It has become an issue that demands the attention of all of us.
Given the Mahayana promise to protect against such urgent dangers, it is a duty that we can’t deny. Not only should we listen to, contemplate, and meditate upon the Buddha’s teachings, it is vital that we implement them in our communities on a daily basis. Therefore, I have expressly sent this massage on the environment to all of our monastery and centres. Please post it in a prominent location so that it may be observed and implemented with great care.
