” I ask all of you to join us on March 31st, 8.30 pm, to turn off your lights for one hour. This simple gesture has a profound consequence. It joins us with millions of people around the world and raises our concern about the impacts of climate change on our world in one common voice. It affirms our collective sense of responsibility to give back to the earth and to each other. It reminds us that the individual choices people make can together overcome the environmental challenges we face today. A truly meaningful religious practice includes acting to protect the earth and all living beings that thrive on it. Please join us to help create a climate-safe tomorrow.”

– His Holiness the 17th Gyalwang Karmapa
