ECO BUDDHISM PHILOSOPHY AND SPIRITUAL APPROACH IN TEXTILE INDUSTRY
- Our environmental philosophy has its roots in Eastern culture and Buddhism religion. The name Buddha jeans is actually coming from the word “Buddha nature” who is often written in small letters. The most important philosophical issues that the blog stand for is based in the Buddhism basics of the four noble truths, the middle way, Karma, the eight folded path and the view of the world as connected. This philosophy is based upon equally sharing of values, resources, respect, action, awareness and deep compassion for all living beings, including animals and the nature around us. We believe the Buddhist way of dealing with important issues as the environment is tremendously valuable in a human and compassionate view.
