  • Introduction | Buddhist Connection
    long term It is based on under standing of the interdependence of all life on Earth and respect for all species we share this planet with Buddhist ancient origins and eco living symbols Buddhism originated in north Indian forests more than 2500 years ago beneath a Bodhi Tree The Gotama Buddha embodied or was one with the eco sustainable way of life he taught He sought the universal truths while living in Indian forests attained full awakening while sitting under a Bodhi Tree and then walked the countryside teaching the Dhamma and staying mainly in forests He lived extremely simply content with basic life requisites and chose to die in a forest beneath a canopy of flowering Sal trees The earliest symbol of Buddhism is a Bodhi Tree Ficus religiosa According to the scriptures people asked the Buddha whom should they pay respect to when he was absent and he replied that they should pay respect to a Bodhi Tree Since then the Bodhi Trees have been planted in Buddhist temple gardens all around the world They remind us of the forest origins of the Buddhist tradition and of the dependence of our life on nature and to be kind to all beings Another ancient Buddhist symbol is a Buddha s footprint It also reminds us of the Buddha and his eco friendly way of life living simply teaching the Dhamma and establishing the Triple Gem the Buddha Dhamma and Sangha on Earth You yourselves must strive the Buddhas only point the way Dhammapada 20 276 The first and most important way the Buddha pointed or taught the eco sustainable way of living the Middle Way was just by living that way himself Without that all his other teachings would have been fruitless What are our project aims and objectives
