Ecological Perspectives in Buddhism
Ecological Perspectives in Buddhism
Description
Preface

Life exists and survives in ecology which has two-fold spheres: internal and external. The concern of internal ecology is inner sphere and that of external ecology is outer sphere of the existence. The importance of ecology can be gleaned from the fact that in reality, existence and ecology cannot be separated from each other. The animate existence, and particularly human existence, imbibes and revolves around its ecology. The inner sphere of ecology is the mental realm of human beings. As different from the inner realm, the external realm consist of all those things/events/phenomena which affect human consciousness; both existence as well as well-being. Although internal and external ecological perspectives can logically be separated from each other, there is a relationship of inherence between them, as one’s existence determines the nature of the existence of others and also in return gets determined by others. Human existence-mental as well as physical-is a product of ecology: internal as well as external. Mental determines physical, likewise physical determines mental. Nothing can be separated from others. The aim of the search for ecological thoughts in Buddhism is to show that our ancient culture was concerned with reflections on the inter-connectedness between life and ecology. This anthology aims at a comprehensive overview of these reflections.

Here, except essays of Lhakdor, Lata Chhatre, Bijayananda Kar and M.R. Chinchore, which were presented at the ICPR National Seminar held at Government College Dharamsala, Himachal Pradesh in May 2002, others are quite new ones. Though I had organized the seminar with the directorship of Prof. Rimpoche, Prime Minister, Central Tibetan Administration, Dharamsala in 2002, there was no idea to bring about the anthology at that time. The idea struck in 2005, while working on a project on Tibetan Buddhism. I requested my known friends to contribute and the present anthology is the result. The attempt has been made to differentiate it from the seminar proceedings and present a thoroughly renewed approach to Buddhist thought on a very relevant issue of ecological concerns.

Back of the Book

Ecological Perspectives in Buddhism Human existence - mental as well as physical - is a product of ecology. Bu way of showing that our ancient culture was concerned with reflections on the intimate relationship between life and ecology, this anthology presents an in-depth analysis of Buddhist response to ecological concerns.

It reflects upon the wider range of contemporary relevance and importance, such as the relationship between mental and physical aspects of human life, casual explanation of ecological issues in the light of pratityasamutpada and concept of sunyata, social and legal ecology, tantra and vipasyana aspects of Buddhist yoga, and Buddhist approach to ‘deep’ as well as ‘shallow’ ecology. This book will be useful for the students and scholars of various disciplines who are interested in ecological issues and their possible solutions, development workers, ecologists, and the lay-men interested in the subject.

Ramakrishna, Australia
I really LOVE you! Wonderful selections, prices and service. Thank you!
Tina, USA
This is to inform you that the shipment of my order has arrived in perfect condition. The actual shipment took only less than two weeks, which is quite good seen the circumstances. I waited with my response until now since the Buddha statue was a present that I handed over just recently. The Medicine Buddha was meant for a lady who is active in the healing business and the statue was just the right thing for her. I downloaded the respective mantras and chants so that she can work with the benefits of the spiritual meanings of the statue and the mantras. She is really delighted and immediately fell in love with the beautiful statue. I am most grateful to you for having provided this wonderful work of art. We both have a strong relationship with Buddhism and know to appreciate the valuable spiritual power of this way of thinking. So thank you very much again and I am sure that I will come back again.
Bernd, Spain
