TGLBC had a wonderful community clean up, the entire length of Town Farm Rd, in Gray and through North Yarmouth. We rejoice in sharing these heartfelt efforts in our daily commitment to living in harmony and simply upon the earth. And in sharing the responsibility to take very good care of ourselves and all mother beings.
We covered both sides of the road and are happy to likewise draw attention and support to the COP26 Climate Change Conference happening now in Glasgow, Scotland. Everyone has a role to play. As Buddhist practitioners, we likewise care for the Earth Goddess. The Earth Goddess is present in the appearance of the Buddha in Earth touching mudra, His right hand over the right knee, middle finger touching the earth. When faced with the threat from Mara, the character who represents the fear of doubt, unworthiness and insignificance, Siddhartha called upon the earth goddess to bear witness to His attainment of enlightenment. Therefore, we who follow Buddha’s teachings of Dharma should likewise pay special attention to supporting the earth goddess and all mother beings.
