Addressing the Prakriti Vandan program organized on Sunday by the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) Department of Environmental Activities and the Hindu Spiritual and Seva Foundation, Sangh chief Dr. Mohan Bhagwat said that the way of living is prevalent in the world right now, that environment Is not compatible with This method teaches man how to live by conquering nature. While we have to nurture nature, not exploitation. This method has been practiced in India for 2000 years.
Through such a program, it is necessary to revive that rite in life and the future generations should also learn this. He said that the word environment is heard a lot right now. The day of celebration is also fixed. We have to do all this because we are living with the thought that the responsibility of nature is not on man.
Man has complete authority over nature. For the last 300 years, we have been living with this thought, whose consequences are in front of everyone. If it continues like this, neither we will survive nor will the creation survive. Therefore, when the attention of the people of the world went to this, then start celebrating Environment Day, it should also be celebrated. Everyone should think on how to protect the environment.
truth of existence was understood by our ancestors
The RSS chief said that the way of living in India is different. Our ancestors recognized the truth of existence. We are also part of nature, this feeling is from the beginning. The way the body works, the body moves, and if the body does not have life, then all the parts of the body gradually stop working. In the same way nature and man are related. He said that there is life in the tree as well, people of India know from the beginning. The tree was not touched in the evening. The feeling of nurturing everyone in their homes has been there from the beginning.
Ant, cow, dog and needy etc. have been served in the houses. In the way of living our life, what to do and what not to do is decided, but under the influence of the wandering way, everyone forgot. Therefore, we have to remember it by celebrating it as Environment Day. But the way we are celebrating it on 30 August today, similarly celebrating it on other days is to inculcate the spirit of keeping nature alive in the coming generation. If they do, then the damage that has been done in 350 years can be repaired in the next 200 years.
Mankind will be safe if the world is safe
The Sangh chief said that if creation is safe, then mankind will be safe. We have to put this thing in our conduct. To nourish the entire creation, your life has to be beautiful. Keeping the spirit of working for the progress of all, one has to move forward.
