The Great Gate A GUIDEBOOK TO THE GURU’S HEART PRACTICE Chokling Dewey Dorje, Dujdom Rinpoche, Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, & Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche Translated and edited by Erik Pema Kunsang & Marcia Binder Schmidt Tr easures from JUNIPER RIDGE THE PROFOUND TREAS URE INSTRUCTIONS OF PADMASAM BHAVA TO THE DAKINI YESHE TSOGYAL Commentar y by Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche Tr anslated and Edited by Erik Pema Kunsang & Marcia Binder Schmidt thought that was discouraging, but mostly it was deeply sobering. It led me to see that it is very important that I pass the green spark on to the next generation. Young people need to be mentored and encouraged to explore the green path of practice. They need support, opportunities, friends, and a multigenera- tional community of practice partners. The vision I carry of a healthy and life-sustaining Earth will take some time to accomplish. It is a cross-generational and cross-cultural project. We don’t know how long we must invest in this path of practice. A very impor- tant part of following the green lifeway is in- viting younger people along, showing them it is possible to nurture the green heart and live a life of conscious intention. HOW THEN SHALL WE LIVE? In today’s world, the pace of change seems to accelerate exponentially year to year. It is not easy to take the time to reflect on our actions, assess priorities, set intention, and build community. Mostly we fall short of our green hopes and ideals. Sometimes the rate of destruction seems to be speeding up right before our eyes. But it is also true that the rate of learning—the spread of infor- mation and new ways of doing things—is faster than we ever could have imagined ten or twenty years ago. Yes, people and nations vary considerably in their commitment to the new sustainability practices. But the overall momentum toward the green prac- tice path is accelerating and headed in the right direction, urged on now by the most pressing matter of climate change. I know only some pieces of what will be required in taking up these challenges. But I do know we need each others’ voices and hearts as we deliberate about how to pro- ceed. The green practice path will be fraught with difficulty; the obstacles are everywhere. We need to understand that these very ob- stacles are the path. We will all be called to deepen our green commitment to be ready for the complexities, the impossibilities, the world as we can’t yet imagine it—both ter- rible and beautiful in its unfolding. ♦ Excerpted from Mindfully Green: A Personal and Spiritual Guide to Whole Earth Thinking, by Stephanie Kaza. © 2008 Stephanie Kaza.
