    Would the dam not help control flooding that causes so much suffering in your other posts? Would fish not be able to live in the flooded lake area? Would the animals not be given time to move out from the area as it floods?

    Just verify the provisions and actions taken for the rehabilitation of such species of animals as well as the human beings and investigate the justification of such construction for the national interest , the assessment will be very easy. Good morning Jendhamuni Sos.

    Arrest of nature brings disaster and serious damage to the eco system and may cause the damage to the atmosphere . Have a good day Jendhamuni Sos.

    As far as the Nature activists are concerned government can not keep them for a long time in jail because they are under cover of international community. Good evening from my side Jendhamuni SOS.

    This is a tough judgment call to make, balancing the needs of economic growth of a nation with the destruction of the enviroment. As with the Tao symbol , something lost and something gained as things move forward.

    The trouble with your argument Ror Livthes, is that everything else in the environment must suffer for the advancement of MAN !
    We're the youngest creatures to have evolved on our sorrowful planet, yet we are the most destructive ❗😈
    The sooner Mother Earth decides we are no more than a highly destructive virus, the better off every other plant and animal will be ❗
    Then this beautiful Earth will, someday, return to Eden/Shangri-La it once was 👍☺

    +Kieran Benn Your sentiment Kieran is quite appropriate. Though rather than your rather unhappy anticipated solution, I would prefer man to follow the traditional example of the North American Indian nations.

Of the many problems we face today, some are natural calamities and must be accepted and faced with equanimity. Others, however, are of our own making, created by misunderstanding, and can be corrected...

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
