“Above all, Buddhism is based on the recognition of interdependence, the spiritual truth that biologists have also elucidated through the scientific disciplines of ecology, evolution, and molecular genetics. And whether we like it or not, we have entered the century of the environment. In this century, Buddhism has a special destiny. There has never been a more important time in history to bring all the resources of Buddhism together, on behalf of all sentient beings. There has never been a time when transportation and communication systems make this as possible as they do now. Buddhist spiritual power could create examples of change that influence the whole world.”
