    Engaged Buddhism. Confronting the social suffering.

    One could really get their karma merit badges by doing something about trees.

    How about ordaining waterways? The ocean? Endangered species everywhere?

    thanks for the insight.

    • Sounds wonderful and I’m all for it. The Lotus sutra has a chapter “The Bodhisattva never disparages” basically it outlines this Bodhisattva’s practice which was to show respect to all beings because they were all Buddhas. This resonates with me and I find it impossible to make distinctions between friend and fauna. Compassion is boundless and inclusive.
