Join us for Hindu Teachings on the Environment, a webinar with Dr. Pankaj Jain – GreenFaith’s Hindu Scholar in Residence - on April 4 from 8:00-9:00 p.m. ET.  Register now.

Dr. Jain is an Assistant Professor of Indian Religions and Ecology at the University of North Texas.  He is the author of Dharma and Ecology of Hindu Communities: Sustenance and Sustainability, and is an expert on the links between ancient Indic traditions of Hinduism and Jainism and the environment.  His writing has appeared in The Huffington Post, the Washington Post’s Forum On Faith, and more.  

In the webinar, Dr. Jain will describe key Hindu teachings on the environment, providing examples of how diverse Hindu communities have put these teachings into action.

Dr. Jain has also written Ten Key Hindu Teachings on the Environment, which is available through GreenFaith, where he describes the most significant Hindu teachings on the environment, citing Gandhi as an example of Hindu ecological values in action.
