Inside Nan: The World We Have: A Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology

The World We Have: A Buddhist Approach to Peace and Ecology by Thich Nhat Hanh, Introduction by Alan Weisman
Thich Nhat Hanh links his contemplation of environmental destruction in the world around us, to the Buddhist teachings of the impermanence of all things. Rather than seeing the nature of impermanence as reason to passively accept environmental destruction, he demonstrates how this teaching can offer inner peace and the possibility of using our collective wisdom and technology to help restore the Earth's balance.

...This is the perfect book for anyone looking for ways and suggestions to take practice off the cushion and into a life that is more balanced, peaceful, and more engaged and interested co-existence with our planet rather than dominance over it.
