Implementation of the Environmental Conservation insisted in the Spiritual Dictionary during the Ancient vedic Age

Let favorable wind blow, rivers flow with pure water.
Let the herbs give vitality to us.
Let the days and nights be enjoyable and dusts of this Earth and the Sky, which is our father, be free from pollution.
Let the trees and the Sun become pleasant for us.
Let the cows nourish us with their sweet milk.

These hyms of the Rig veda proclaim the universal prayer of mankind to Mother Nature, who has offered them a suitable place for living. It is the moral responsibility of the human beings to pay their homage to the natural objects like the Sun, air, Sky, Oceans, trees ,herbs etc, which make their lives vigorous and delightful.

The Shrimad Bhagavad Gita , often referred to as the Gita, is a 700 –verse Hindu Scripture that is part of the epic Mahabharata, commonly dated to the second century BCE .Numerous commentaries have been written on the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita with widely differing views on the essentials. The Shrimad Bhagavad Gita presents a synthesis of Hindu ideas about dharma, theistic bhakti and the yogic ideals of Moksha. The text covers Jnana ,bhakti, karma and Raja yoga incorporating ideas from the Samkhya-yoga philosophy. The Bhagavad Gita is the best known and most famous of Hindu texts, with a unique pan-Hindu influence.

The Gita's call for selfless action inspired many leaders of the Indian independence movement including Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Mahatma Gandhi ; the latter referred to it as his Spiritual Dictionary. In a war centric Environment, Lord Krishna explained Arjuna the necessity of war in favour of dharma ( right Judgment). While narrating ,Krishna mentioned the universe as creation from his power and he is the governor of birth and death of living element.

He is the rules of the universe and everything reacted according to his direction. He is the creator of the nature and the livings, his another creation are brought up in the lap of the nature. He has established the rule upon which the relation between the living and the nature are governed.

Living beings live on food ,which is generated from cloud (rain ) and further cloud if generated from yagya, the offering to God. The accumulated 'yagya' will be used as a means of action, i.e; today's offering will be gained in tomorrow. Every work is governed by the grace of the nature, but only the arrogant people deny it. Land, water, fire, air, space, mind, intelligence and arrogance these eight are 'apara' considered to be non-living elements. Except these eight there is another element of mine, different from those-'para' the sense. It is the agent which holds the whole universe. All animals are originated from these Para and 'Apara.

Everything in the universe is created from the almighty God itself. Those creations are not resting distinct, those are strung on a single thread as the beads and forms a beautiful necklace. Water, the Sun, the moon, the life wind are all related with each other. These verses are pointing to the integral relationship among every elements of this universe. Each of them is beautifully arranged on a string and is governed by a unique force to drive this universe. If one of these is affected, the whole system will be in unstable condition, like that necklace- if the string is torn, there will be no existence of the necklace.

After the end of some duration all energy and materials are returned to that Super Power and waits for being manifested for the next life time(kalp).The world undergoes the changes accordingly ( The evaluation) under his direction. Evaluation of the nature is a natural Phenomenon.

The livings have to change their structure and behavior in order to sustain in the world. It is really amazing that so many years ago, the Hindu community had the concept of evaluation ,though mentioned as a play of the Supreme !The nature is a form of material energy and it is eternal. The individual souls are also eternal. When a soul lives in a body, it is a living. The body performs its transformation from the material energy. In other words, the living has to depend on the nature to grow.

Nature plays the key role to perform activities and effect is received accordingly. For the suffering and enjoyment of the world the livings are responsible . In other words, suffering or enjoyment in the world depends on the activities of the living entities. The activities of a living, determines the soul in it to take next birth in Superior and inferior wombs.

In another approach, it can be said that the uplift or downslide in a society of an individual depends on its behavior to its surroundings. The nature is the mother of all the livings. The life is created only from the nature. The interdependency of Environment and living is highlighted in this article.

It's astonishingly wondering that people about 3000 year ago had concept about the intensive binding of nature and living. The Srimad Bhagavad Gita is presented like a discussion and offering of Knowledge by a teacher to a student, and the matters are presented lucidly with examples.
