Conserving the environment through nature worship.
India traditionally nurtures an environmentally sensitive philosophy. Itâ€™s evident through the culturally rich nationâ€™s breathtaking variety of religious and epic texts â€“ that contain within them one of the earliest messages in the world for preservation of environmental and ecological balance. Nature has never been considered by Indians as a hostile element to be conquered â€“ we still teach our children to live in harmony with nature and recognize that divinity prevails in all elements, including plants and animals. Vestiges of many of these traditions are still living in our rituals and practices â€“ both in the urban and rural contexts.
