There exists a deep ecological tradition in Vedic culture by which human settlement, forests, and water resources are carefully balanced. To achieve that balance, nature’s welfare and human welfare cannot be separated each other.
For this reason Vedic ecology teaches that the earth and the cow are to be loved and cared for as mothers. As such, culture — including the cultivating of land for crops — is an outward expression of spirituality.
As a painting expresses the spirit of the artist, culture expresses the spirit of society. Vedic culture has lasted for many thousands of years and is still visible even today. It’s a way of life that’s lasts forever. It’s self-perpetuating and regenerating.
