I am happy to release the 108 Things You Can Do today on Earth Day (April 22nd) and hope that this auspicious act has far-reaching benefits for the Earth.
Our world is facing an environmental crisis which is complex, overwhelming and affects us all, but it is difficult to know where to begin and what we can do.
It is very important for all of us to change our behavior and we need to start taking practical steps. These 108 Things You Can Do are a path that everyone can follow in order to make a difference.
This list of 108 Things You Can Do was produced during the First Kagyu Conference on Environmental Protection held in Saranath, Varanasi in March 2009. These practical solutions were developed under the leadership of His Holiness with the help of the representatives from the participating monasteries and nunneries.
