Buddhist Statements on the Environment

Many Buddhist leaders have written and spoken in support of environmental protection.  The following are links to a select number of important statements.

 

"Aware of the suffering caused by the destruction of life, I undertake to cultivate compassion and learn ways to protect the lives of people, animals, plants, and minerals. I am determined not to kill, not to let others kill, and not to condone any act of killing in the world, in my thinking, and in my way of life."

Reverence for Life
