About the Book:

Human existence – mental as well as physical – is a product of ecology.

It reflects upon the wider range of contemporary relevance and importance, such as the relationship between mental and physical aspects of human life, casual explanation of ecological issues in the light of pratityasamutpada and concept of sunyata, social and legal ecology, tantra and vipasyana aspects of Buddhist yoga, and Buddhist approach to ‘deep’ as well as ‘shallow’ ecology.
