Yes, I think this is the most important.Dechen Norbu wrote: ↑Tue Mar 13, 2012 3:14 pmIt's always good to remember that mostly it's our attitude that counts. Our respect towards Dharma that arises spontaneously when we start to give it the proper appreciation. The way we dispose of these materials must reflect that and will very naturally. That seems more important than the practicalities that come after.
I have been pondering this for a while. I don't have time for soaking and paper mache. What do you think about shredding (via machine) and composting dharma materials? I'm thinking mostly of materials printed from the web, but also texts printed out for particular events. Burning just seems so environmentally irresponsible these days. Wouldn't the little creatures who live in the compost and the garden gain some benefit?
