Occupy the Climate Emergency: Buddhist Reflections on Inter-generational Justice

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/john-stanley/occupy-the-climate-emerge_b_1116727.html

Since our time on this wondrous planet is brief, we must consider our responsibility to all those who will come after us, whose well-being will depend on the decisions we make today. Shall we sacrifice our children, their children and the next 50 generations for a zero-empathy corporate state? Or shall we “occupy” this climate emergency instead of denying it — until the urgent truth of our situation is acted upon?

Book review: ‘Beyond Religion’ by the Dalai Lama

After a lifetime of Buddhist reflection, he suggests that religion is tea to the water of compassion. Tea is nutritious, water essential.

Now, as he steps down as leader of Tibet, the perpetually smiling monk in saffron and burgundy robes makes in “Beyond Religion: Ethics for a Whole World” what some may regard as a heretical pronouncement: You don’t need religion to lead a happy and ethical life.
