Revamp: writings on secular Buddhism, Winton Higgins’s newest book, tracks the emergence of secular Buddhism, and has as its focus on today’s climate emergency and intensifying social injustice, as they cry out for radical socioeconomic and political change.
Bernat Font, a contributor to the SBN website, will be interviewing Buddhist meditation teacher and Extinction Rebellion activist Yanai Postelnik in March. What questions would you like Bernat to pose to Yanai?
Responsible citizenship goes to the core of our ethical commitments as dharma practitioners. So the existential threat to ourselves and all other life-forms, that climate change poses, must stand high on our civic agenda. It mightily evokes the overarching ethic of the dharma – the ethic of care – understood both as concernful awareness, and as a prompt to action.
