Dharma Master Hsin Tao is well-known for his lifelong dedication to environmental issues and ecology. He says that ‘the future of Planet Earth is the future of mankind as well.’ For the longest time, Loving the Earth / Loving Peace has been the cornerstone to his ideal and provides the backbone to his long-term campaign ‘Tranquility for World Peace’, while at the same time the Ling Jiou Mountain (LJM) team effort in promoting the ‘9 Ways To Live By When Going Green’ helps to make sure that LJM practices what it preaches, and words are acted out far beyond lip services.
In order that our environmental concerns stay at the forefront of people’s attention and the torch is passed on, two LJM entities – respectively the future University for Life & Peace (ULP) in Myanmar and the New York Chan Space Meditation Center – worked together in 2020 on a six-month media hands-on program for the youth to address their concerns for the Earth’s deteriorating environment. Young people from New York, London, and Taiwan signed up to Here on Earth – Ocean Waters to learn about the reality in their direct vicinity and document their observations and reflections, using the media skillset they recently acquired from the program.
Coinciding with the World Earth Day 2021, young participants of the Here on Earth program put on public display what they know about, and think of, the oceans near their cities, and their use of the media language found approval from online viewers in the digital screenings and simultaneous workshop for live streaming. Dharma Master gave words of encouragement to the young ‘movie producers’ for what they have learned and achieved in a relatively short span of time.
Dharma Master Hsin Tao is much concerned about the ever-increasingly alarming pollution in ocean waters, as well as with all things ecological. Without tiring he reminds the general public about the significance of the spiritual awakening in terms of the Earth’s sustainability. The Master also shuttles internationally to translate ideology into action for deliverables pecked to consistent and ongoing efforts in materializing ‘Loving the Earth / Loving Peace’.
As time wears on and testifies to how Dharma Master Hsin Tao has been leading the way in staying the course of ‘Loving the Earth / Loving Peace’, and we most certainly look forward to your joining in our collective effort in contributing to the Earth’s healing for sustainability.
