Hinduism has always been an environmentally sensitive philosophy. No religion, perhaps, lays as much emphasis on environmental ethics as Hinduism. The Mahabharata, Ramayana, Vedas, Upanishads, Bhagavad Gita, Puranas and Smriti contain the earliest messages for preservation of environment and ecological balance. Nature, or Earth, has never been considered a hostile element to be conquered or dominated. In fact, man is forbidden from exploiting nature. He is taught to live in harmony with nature and recognize that divinity prevails in all elements, including plants and animals. The rishis of the past have always had a great respect for nature. Theirs was not a superstitious primitive theology. They perceived that all material manifestations are a shadow of the spiritual. The Bhagavad Gita advises us not to try to change the environment, improve it, or wrestle with it. If it seems hostile at times tolerate it. Ecology is an inherent part of a spiritual world view in Hinduism.

The Hindus honour all the forms of the divine even beyond the creator. Hindu ritual worship works with the forces of nature to bring a higher consciousness and energy into the world. They perceive that all material manifestations are a shadow of the spiritual. May it be rivers, mountains, lakes, animals, flora, the mineral world, as well as the stars and planets. It is so because the divine reality is present as 'prana' / 'shakti' in every electron, particle, atom, cell and in every manifestation of matter...!
