The Effect of the Buddhist Teachings of Metta, Karma, Anicca, Anatta and Equanimity on the Environment
I believe that these five Buddhist teachings of metta, karma, anicca, anatta and equanimity have a huge effect on the environment. Each of these teachings has a specific effect on the environment. Metta teaches Buddhists to spread love and kindness around the world. This means that this love and kindness should also be extended towards the environment. Therefore Buddhists will try to help to keep the environment healthy, i.e. unpolluted and safe. The law of karma states that actions have consequences.
