Join us for this intimate evening of sacred music to honor and conserve the sacred groves of wild India, home of the majestic tiger and elephants and a diversity of flora and fauna.
“Sacred Music for Sacred Forests” with chanting and music by Krishna Das, Nina Rao, and Noah Hoffeld and talk by Dr. Krithi Karanth of Center for Wildlife Studies India and a special message from Prof. Robert A.F. Thurman of Tibet House is a is a benefit in support of Dr. Krithi Karanth’s conservation work in the remaining forests of India AND Rewilding India! Krithi is the daughter of Dr. Ullas Karanth is widely respected as India’s preeminent tiger conservationist and biologist whom some of you met at our earlier in-person event in 2015. Since then we’ve done an online event during the pandemic lockdown which many of you supported.
In view of the climate crisis we are living through, we believe it’s important to turn our mind and energies with great intention to preserving the bio-diverse wilderness areas that exist in the world and continue the process of ‘re-wilding’ tracts of land (and water) so that we might continue to have the support of Nature for the well-being of human-Kind and all Beings. This requires a strong effort on our part to co-exist with wildlife and wild places… even if only to appreciate the pure Beauty of nature but also for the well-being of the Mother Earth that supports us and future generations.
This in-person evening is hosted by Saving Wild Tigers, with support from Tibet House and Kirtan Wallah Foundation.
Your donation goes directly toward the protection of India’s forest, for research and programs that support the co-existence of humans with wildlife. It is amazing and immensely hopeful that India, the most densely populated country in the world, continues to have viable shelter for wildlife and a wild tiger and wild elephant population that can still improve, despite ongoing habitat destruction and poaching. It is imperative that along with managing climate change, simply preserving the existing wilderness and bio-diversity and rewilding more land is part of the answer to saving our planet and pure Beauty.
