COVID-19 pandemic have changed the tone and tenor of everyday life by touching many aspects of global society. This includes the ecology and religion. Social distancing measures have already impacted the environment on a global scale.
Coronavirus pandemic continues to cause deaths and disrupt billions of lives globally. So people may turn to religious groups, family, friends, co-workers or other social networks for support. A research shows that more and more people are becoming religious in the USA than in any other country. Nearly three-in-ten Americans (28%) report stronger personal faith because of the pandemic.
I think people are making this connection with the help of scientists and epidemiologists and Center for Disease Control etc…. That the environment impinges on human health and we can’t have healthy people on a sick planet. Here is why religions have this possibility of reaching people in the mosque, in the synagogue, in the temple, on the ground. I also think that on another level, you could say on a personal level, this Covid period has really caused people to go into contemplation, reflection, meditation, yoga, tai-chi. All the things that keep us healthy. So, it is a moment of extraordinary reflection. I think that people are going into this part of themselves that nourish life, because we are at such feeling of “end-times”. We might be pressed back, but transformation renewal is arising.
I do think that the world will never be the same, clearly. There are new forms of religiosity; spirituality, forms of amore comprehensive compassion and more inclusive ethics for other people, those who are suffering. So, that sense of empathy and compassion, which shows that we are unified as people, but also somehow mysterious. All religions understand this. Unified as an earth community with these extraordinary systems which nurture us. River systems, forest systems, savannahs, all of those places, the mangroves, the oceans are places that nourish us. One of the things that has inspired me is in the Confucian tradition.
Religion can play important roles in addressing climate change and environmental health. The normative teachings of various traditions—including Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam—can address the ethical crisis of climate change, as countries least responsible for global warming disproportionately suffer diseases linked to environmental change. In this interview with Ms. Tucker, we went through some important questions about the connection between religion and ecology and how to maintain the environment. Everything around is nourishing us, everything has its own energy, take care of the place that you live in.
