Four trees planted by a Nalanda Course participant, Piya Bakshi
On June 2, 2023, most Nalanda Course students from Tibet House, New Delhi, plus Venerable Geshe Dorji Damdul, and all of the Tibet House team, traveled to Dharamsala to see the Dalai Lama.
In an effort to offset some of the carbon footprint associated with that travel, Piya Bakshi decided to plant these trees.
Hans Timpner, our regional coordinator in Aruba was also a student at Tibet House at the time. He shared with us that, after the trip, he challenged his fellow students to plant at least one tree to compensate for some of the carbon emitted during the trip. Piya took the call and planted one Lemon tree, one Java Plum tree, one Champa tree, and one Indian Gooseberry tree.
Piya dedicates these trees to the benefit of all beings – “may each bring joy, peace, and well-being.”
Thank you, Piya, for planting these trees, and Hans, for telling us about them.
If you are also planting trees, share your story with us. Your actions can inspire so many, and together we can build a better future for all generations to come.
|The planting of these trees is dedicated to benefit all sentient beings. May it bring each being joy, peace, and well-being. May Buddha Dharma flourish in all directions. May Dharma reach out to each being and give them everlasting happiness.
