Tibetan Buddhist monks visiting the Mariposa Museum in Peterborough this week plan to  present a lecture “Climate Change and the Six Delusions” on Friday at 7 p.m.

“In this world, we have all been facing the problem of climate change,” visiting monk Gesha Lobsang Wangyal said. “Natural disasters have been coming, because we are not taking care of nature.”

Wangyal said the problem is tied to human’s greediness, speaking to the need for  more material things such as building more industry or clearing land for people’s use, over taking care of the earth.

“We can go to the moon and come back safely. There is no limit of our potential,” he said.

The monks will also continue to offer group healing and purification rituals today, Thursday, at 6 p.m. Private healing and purification rituals may also be arranged by appointment. For a full listing of events visit mariposamuseum.org.
