Compassion is Action
Buddhist nuns work to protect the Himalayas

Our first original story of 2017 shares the inspiring approach of how Tibetan Buddhist nuns are putting the spiritual values of compassion and interdependence into action to address environmental issues impacting the Himalayan region and Tibetan plateau. Throughout India, Nepal and Bhutan monks and nuns are working to protect the Himalayas through KHORYUG, a eco-monastic network of more than 60 monasteries and nunneries established by His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa.

"Environmental conservation must be the essence of our spiritual practice." —His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa.

This is the first in a series of stories that will be offered, including films, articles, interviews, photo essays, and more.
