The Lotus Sutra mentions the name of a special bodhisattva: Dharanimdhara, or Earth Holder, someone who preserves and protects the earth.

Earth Holder is the energy that is holding us together as an organism. She is a kind of engineer or architect whose task is to create space for us to live in, to build bridges for us to cross from one side to the other, to construct roads so that we can to go to the people we love. Her task is to further communication between human beings and other species and to protect the Earth and the environment…Although the Earth Holder bodhisattva is mentioned in the Lotus Sutra, there is not a chapter devoted entirely to her.

quote from The World We Have, by Thich Nhat Hanh

《妙法蓮華經》裡提到一位很特別的菩薩──持地菩薩(Dharanimdhara),她是保存和保護大地的菩薩。持地菩薩是一種能量,能把世間萬物聯系在一起。她就像工程師或建筑師,為我們制造一個可以共存的空間,建造橋梁讓我們從此處到達彼處,建設道路讓我們走到所愛的人那裡。她的工作是加強人類和其他物種的溝通以及保護環境。……
雖然在《妙法蓮華經》中,沒有一個獨立的章節講述持地菩薩,但我們應該認識這位菩薩,從而協助她,為她寫下新的篇章,因為在全球化的年代,我們非常需要持地菩薩。
