One Earth Sangha

Washington, DC

The founding premise of One Earth Sangha is that the Buddhist tradition offers significant, largely untapped resources that can support humanity in bringing wisdom, compassion, courage, creativity, flexibility, and a steady resolve to our interrelated ecological and social crises. Through an online presence and partnerships with diverse Buddhist teachers and communities around the world, One Earth Sangha helps bring these resources to bear on today’s unprecedented challenges.

A monk once asked the Zen master Yun Men, “What is the work of the Buddha’s whole life?”
Yun Men replied, “An appropriate response.”
