9781888375886: The World We Have: A Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology

In this provocative book, noted Buddhist teacher Thich Nhat Hanh offers a dramatic vision of the future of a planet overheated by rapidly disappearing fossil fuels, degraded by massive overconsumption, and besieged by unsupportable population growth. Hanh finds answers to these critical problems in the Buddhist teaching of the impermanence of all things. He demonstrates how this teaching can offer inner peace and help us use our collective wisdom and technology to restore the Earth's balance. Mixing inspiring insights with practical strategies, Hanh cites projects his own monastic community has undertaken that can serve as models for any community. Both his “ No Car Day,” observed once a week, and the “Earth Peace Treaty Commitment Sheet” can impact our ecological footprint on the Earth. Above all, he shows how acceptance of problems is that first critical step toward a deeper understanding of the best way to care for our Earth.

Book Description Parallax. 1 Paperback(s), 2008. soft. Book Condition: New. In this provocative book, Zen teacher Thich Nhat Hanh offers a dramatic vision of the future—an earth overheated by rapidly disappearing fossil fuels, degraded by massive overconsumption, and besieged by unsupportable population growth. Hanh finds solutions to these critical developments in the Buddhist teaching of the impermanence of all things, mixing insights with practical strategies. Hanh describes projects that his own monastic community has undertaken, and offers them as models for any community; both "No Car Day," observed once a week, and the "Earth Peace Treaty Commitment Sheet" can impact our ecological footprint on the earth."Past the age of 80 now, the indefatigable Vietnamese Buddhist monk Nhat Hanh continues teaching. As peace flows from Buddhist teachings, so too does an environmental ethic rooted in awareness and interrelatedness. Nhat Hanh's engaged Buddhism, a Buddhist school that emphasizes social responsibility, takes on the task of preserving and protecting the earth. No effort is too small; an Earth Peace Treaty Commitment Sheet in an appendix lists nearly 60 easy behaviors to minimize ecological impact. This is an urgent call from a revered spiritual teacher about the moral imperative to treat the earth with respectful awareness."—Publishers Weekly 141. Bookseller Inventory # 61620
