Realizing Peace with the Environment
The Female Energy and Environmental Regeneration
By T.Y.S. Lama Gangchen Rinpoche
The planet urgently needs help to heal its disastrous environmental conditions, or at least mitigate the consequences. Apart from essential practical solutions that humanity can implement by taking greater care of the environment and making good use of technologies, we can also make a precious contribution through this practice on a subtle level.
Tibetan tantric tradition identifies five great elements that compose the universe: earth, water, fire, wind and space, and the related archetypes of female energy: the Five Great Mothers of the Elements. This practice uses their rich symbols, and through mantra, mudra, visualization and breathing meditations, it regenerates and relaxes our five inner elements and the five elements that compose the external world.
Over the years, many practitioners have discovered the extraordinary results of this practice, improved their physical and mental health, and the conditions of the surrounding environment.
