If you do not understand the language of catastrophes, floods and earthquakes, you will be made to understand a harsher and more vulgar language to save your soul.
Anybody who is against the earth, is against you, because you are sons and daughters of the earth. Just as the trees are, just as the birds are, this earth is your mother; and anything that grows on this earth is your family.
All mountains, rivers, earth, sentient beings in fact everything have the Buddha nature ! Buddha and all sentient beings are one and the same.
Grand Master Lu Sheng Yen
I don't want to see the end of the world. I want to see that you help me to preserve this beautiful planet. The future is in our hands, so you make it beautiful or you make it worse; it's up to you. We do not have to, we should not think in this negative way about anything. We should always try our best to do good, to think good, to speak good, then the future will be good.
Supreme Master Ching Hai
Be gentle with the earth - The 14th Dalai Lama
