This beautiful blue planet is my home and is your home.
These innumerable beings are my sisters and brothers and are your different forms.
When I talk about preservation of the environment,
whether I mean the forests, oceans, rivers or wild fauna and flora,
may my decision to act come from your heart.*
May I respect every of your forms
and preserve it
with your compassion.
*An essay on mountains, Messages of His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama of Tibet
