Peace, Compassion and the Natural World

What Buddhist thinking can offer in the face of ecological crisis

A Public Talk with Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

More than 2500 years ago, the Buddha pointed to the delicate balance between humankind and nature. Now, it is clear that ecological crisis cannot be solved by science alone. The challenges of climate change and environmental degradation demand personal, emotional, social, ethical and spiritual responses. In this public talk, Ringu Tulku Rinpoche will offer insights into how the Tibetan Buddhist teachings can inspire and support us to make the personal and wider changes needed to counter the threats to our precious planet.

About Ringu Tulku Rinpoche

Ringu Tulku Rinpoche was born in Kham Lingtsang, in Eastern Tibet, and was recognized by His Holiness the Sixteenth Gyalwang Karmapa as the incarnation of one of the tulkus of the Kagyüpa Ringu monastery. He studied with some of the most distinguished scholars of the Tibetan Nyingma and Kagyu traditions and received teachings from many outstanding masters, including Thrangu Rinpoche, Dodrupchen Rinpoche, Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche, and the Gyalwang Karmapa. In India, he is involved in environmental projects such as the Sowa Rigpa Institute whose aim is to preserve traditional medicinal herbs from Tibet. Rinpoche has participated in many international conferences on the links between Buddhism and science.
