Einstein on Buddhism: “Buddhism has the characteristics of what would be expected in a cosmic religion for the future: It transcends a personal God, avoids dogmas and theology; it covers both the natural and spiritual; and it is based on a religious sense aspiring from the experience of all things, natural and spiritual, as a meaningful unity.
you must teach your children that the ground beneath their feet is the ashes of our grandfathers. so that they will respect the land, tell your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin. teach your children that we have taught our children that the earth is our mother. whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of earth. if men spit upon the ground, they spit upon themselves. - Chief Seattle
