Embracing Nature: Ecology from a Buddhist Perspective
There has been a consistent connection between Buddhism and the environment since ancient times. Harmony with plants and animals has always played an important role in the stories that transmitted Buddhism across the world. In the past, other authors have treated this role lightly, a bit part in a play. Venerable Master Hsing Yun has assembled a collection of these stories for you in this volume and his revelation is that nature is the star of the show. There is serious urgency to his message, in our world today we have to start appreciating plants and animals or out planet will be ruined.
