‘This little book is full of practical advice and profound insight… we have much to learn from Buddhism, not least in terms of deepening our awareness of the interdependent networks of cause and effect that underpin all life.’
— Jonathon Porritt, former Director, Friends of the Earth
With practical ideas, exercises and examples of how to appreciate and protect this rich natural world we all share, environmentalist and Buddhist teacher Akuppa urges us to see beyond our selfish concerns and wake up to the fragile beauty of the world. This capacity to look beyond ourselves is the seed of heroism. Cultivating this seed, we will find in a thousand ordinary ways that real change is possible after all.

Believe nothing merely because you have been told it… Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings — that doctrine believe and cling to and take it as your guide.
