Environmental Guidelines for Karma Kagyu Buddhist Monasteries, Centers and Community

"...combining the Buddhist tradition and our respectful attitude to the environment with contemporary science and practices, I have directed the following guidelines. They are but a small drop in a huge ocean. The challenge is far more complex and extensive than anything we alone can tackle. However, if we can all contribute a single drop of clean water, those drops will accumulate into a fresh pond, then a clear stream and eventually a vast pure ocean. This is my aspiration."

His Holiness the Seventeenth Karmapa, Ogyen Drodul Trinley Dorje
