How Wolves Change River, Dependent Origination

Kyle Dixon
A nice example of pratītyasamutpāda in action. Shared today by Albert's teacher Traktung Khenpa, who wrote:

'Trophic Cascade: ..... Those whose lives become a harmony with the way, with no need for conceptual contrivance, become triggers for a cascading effect of truth, beauty, and goodness.' - t.

Short synopsis of the video:
When wolves were reintroduced to Yellowstone National Park in the United States after being absent nearly 70 years, the most remarkable "trophic cascade" occurred. What is a trophic cascade and how exactly do wolves change rivers? George Monbiot explains in this movie remix.

'When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.' - John Muir
