Majora Carter's ECO HEROES: Robert AF Thurman

Robert A.F. Thurman lives to make the teachings of the Buddha interesting and meaningful to people from all over the world. In doing so, he has been recognized as one of America’s leading voices for sanity and peace in the new millennium. In 1997, Time Magazine chose him as one of its 25 most influential Americans. Working at Columbia University [www.columbia.edu], his intention is to enrich contemporary thought and practice through the profound and vast Buddhist philosophy and psychology.

In this episode of ECO HEROES, Robert AF Thurman talks about some of the environmental problems that the Tibetan people and their lands are suffering from. He goes on to talk about how Tibetan Buddhism may have more in common with environmentalism than most other ideologies on the planet. Make sure to watch the video so you can discover how the belief in reincarnation might make environmentalism a necessary philosophy of all citizens on Earth.
