The Buddhist Connection

I have written before about the Dalai Lama and some environmental insights and approaches. In the context of the Assisi meetings this week, of which I will say more about soon, I think it is appropriate to take a look at another set of discussions with the Dalai Lama here. Clearly the buddhist idea of interconnectedness is an important gateway for engaging environmental issues, as well as interventions on humility and the value of life. The event was organized by the Mind and Life Institute, and had a variety of experts in different fields. A good summary of the event can be seen here. There is a mention of a Christian Theologian, and a little research suggests this is who she is, Sally McFague, you can draw your own conclusions. The video summary of the event is seen below.
