The Burning House: a Buddhist response to the climate and ecological emergency

Shantigarbha’s second book! What does Buddhism have to say about the climate and ecological emergency?

Buddhists give great importance to mindfulness, wisdom, compassion and interconnectedness, qualities that often make them deeply concerned about the environment and climate change.

The Burning House asks how we can wake up and respond to the crisis from a Buddhist perspective. It will be of interest both to Buddhists concerned about the climate, and to eco-activists wishing to ground their work in a spiritual context.
