The Burning Planet, the Internet and Buddhism

The Burning Planet, the Internet and Buddhism


The Buddhist News Sept 02,2019

The World is literally on fire. The Amazon which we depend on for clean air, is a blaze with 1000’s of hectares of rainforests being engulfed daily. Plastics are suffocating our oceans and wild life. The world is experiencing records temperatures and the polar ice caps are melting at an alarming pace.

Scientists finally agree that climate change is real and that man is the major contributing factor. So how did we get here and how do we solve the climate crisis?

According to Buddhist meditation Master Acharavadee Wongsakon we have not been good stewards of the planet. We as a society have allowed corporate greed and our own unbridled consumption to bring our planet to the brink of disaster.

Acharavadee Wongsakon the founder of Knowing Buddha Organization and KBO Earth, believes the solution can be found within Buddhist values. Master Acharavadee authored  The Unspoken Truth of Climate Change Crisis wherein she explains Buddhist values and the importance of morality in society in order to conquer even the most difficult challenges like climate crisis.

Acharavadee also reveals how our use of the Internet is speeding up climate change and heating up the planet faster than anyone ever anticipated. The Mediation Master talks about the fine energy waves that are heating up the planet. “These energy waves act like a microwave oven, and the more we use the Internet, the more we are cooking ourselves and the planet” she explains..

Acharavadee recently spoke at the  Global Warming Symposium in Bangkok Thailand  warning about “the new internet” 5G and Elon Musk’s 20,000 satellites to orbit around the planet, which will make life on earth unbearable due to extreme heat.

In her book Acharavadee provides a list of things we can do combat Climate Change:

  1. Reduce your internet usage
  2. Regularly delete all useless data on cloud servers and communication devices (including all those selfies)
  3. . Slow down Internet related innovations and AI (Artificial Intelligence)
  4. Go back to living a more nature balanced life
  5. Plant trees and use less plastics.
  6. Chant, practice mediation and share loving kindness and compassion

According to Acharavadee’s book, The Climate Crisis can be averted by humanity awakening and raising the level of morality and ethical conduct throughout society and seeking to once again live in harmony with nature and set aside greed and consumerism.

“The key to changing the world is spreading Compassion” says Acharavadee Wongsakon.

    The article enables me to realize that compassion is of significance to beings and the world. To help rescue the world and ourselves from the global climate disaster, we need to think of others and take action from now on.

    I myself also notice that the world turns hot and hotter. This is not a coincidence with the exponential increase in the use of the Internet. Therefore, I am willing to change at myself. I will reduce the use of Internet and delete the unused digital data. I may be a little part of the world but if we all start at ourselves, this will help save the world for sure.
