Buddhist Action Now

Buddhist Action Now has its own website here:

The purpose of Buddhist Action Now is to provide in the public sphere a platform for collective action and speech that manifests and advocates for the dharma values of compassion, wisdom, connection, ethical action, and care. By our Bodhisattva Vow we speak out and take action on behalf of all beings, for their liberation and relief from suffering. 

Specifically, we confront and oppose the forces of greed, hatred, ignorance and fear. We provide exemplars of dynamic, diverse, caring and cooperative communities. We work to transform public consciousness and action toward all that is wholesome, connected, caring, and liberating, for all beings and for our planet.

Each of us has something to do in this lifetime; we have to find out what it is and do it.
