Seattle Betsuin Buddhist Temple Rimban Emeritus Rev. Donald Castro will speak on the topic of "EcoSangha: Jodo Shinshu Buddhism and Ecology”
Describing the EcoSangha Movement, Rev. Castro says,“To be a Buddhist is automatically to be both an ecologist and a conservationist. . . . Buddhism is not just ecology, however. Ecology is science and Buddhism goes beyond science. Being based on a medical model (the four noble truths) Buddhists are always working for a cure. Ecologists tell us the world is in peril from many sources; conservationists seek a cure. This is why Buddhists are both ecologists and conservationists.”
Continental breakfast, lunch, and refreshments provided.
