At the heart of Buddhism, and indeed most all religions and spiritual practices, is the practice of ethics and compassion. It s wonderful to be a signatory to a pledge toward universal compassion and ethics, at a time when our world most needs this unification of focus and practice.

I would like to endorse with a caveat that there is an urgent need to make the global ethical statement into a living, engaging, dynamic dialogue process and not merely a document for celebration. This document needs to engage with the World Trade Organization, the United Nations, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and other such institutions of global nature all of which need to have a more rigorous ethical partner.
I am available in the Parliament in booth no. 510 for furthering this discussion.

I applaud the Parliament on this much needed additional 5th principle of ethics concerning environmental and climate justice. Our global society faces an unprecedented crisis today and the collective voices and wisdom of millions of good-hearted individuals and organizations will be required to address these crises, for the sake of all future generations. As Noam Chomsky and many others have warned, we are fast reaching the tipping point to species extinction, either quickly by nuclear annihilation (the revelations this week concerning Russia's newly proclaimed advancement in hypersonic nuclear missiles as but one indicator) or gradually through continued and increasing predation of the Earth Mother's precious resources resulting in an unsustainable development and undermining of the climate and all this catastrophically entails. I am proud to be a signatory to this addition of environmental justice as a guiding principle of an emerging new ethos embodied in the Parliament's articles and respectful of the rights of unborn future generations to a decent life on this beautiful sphere.

It is a document that is sincere and committed to its goal.
I applaud Parliament’s initiative and wish lots of success.
Scriptures proclaim that an initiative with goal of serving people and nature at large will find heavenly support from unknown and unexpected directions.
