About Us

Buddhists for the Earth is a lay movement bringing together Buddhists from all schools and vehicles who care about the future of life on our planet.

In the situation of the present climate and ecological crisis, we feel a special need to get together, not only meditating and studying Buddhadharma, but also taking practical steps in order to fight the three poisons that scourge humanity: Hatred, Ignorance and Greed.

In this we are inspired by the great teachers and leaders of all times and denominations, such as Confucius, Nichiren, Rennyo, Mahatma Ghandi, Bhimrao Ambedkar, Martin Luther King, Thich Nhat Hanh, His Holiness Dalai Lama and many others.
