My research project is aimed at creating a Thesaurus that takes into account the botanical lexicon and the arboreal metaphors used in Buddhist texts in Sanskrit and Chinese. The Thesaurus, through the pedagogy proper to this textual form, aims to help the reader to rethink his relationship with nature and the surrounding environment.
