The Four Kinds of Environmentalism

Based on Protecting the Spiritual Environment, the Four Kinds of Environmentalism require one to start with the mind and from within, then extend to society, humanity, environment, and nature as a whole.


Protecting the Spiritual Environment

This DDM guiding principle teaches people to maintain a pure and stable mind.


Protecting the Social Environment

This aims to foster interpersonal harmony by purifying bodily action, speech, and thought.


Protecting the Living Environment

This encourages contentment and a simple, natural way of life with few desires, as a way to realize the Chan teaching that spiritual practice lies in everyday life.


Protecting the Natural Environment

We have to cherish blessings, be grateful to the Earth, and protect the environment from pollution and destruction.
