Great Motherland

Maata Prithwi Puthrohum Pridhivya

Earth is the mother of all the living beings. Our elders describe that earth is the mother of all, and that we are all her infant children that feed on her breast - all vegetation is the milk that she feeds us. The Veda (Bhu sukta) praises earth as a goddess. Puranas describe the goddess earth (Bhudevi) as the consort of Lord Vishnu.
In our daily life, treating earth as mother begins when we wake up. Hindus wake up remembering her as "samudra vasane devi parvata stana mandale" and apologise for touching her with feet by saying "pada sparsa kshamasvame". Such outlook implies and inspires respect for nature and surroundings. And people with such outlook live like undifferentiated parts of creation and not as those who have come to conquer/rule it. It is because such outlook is wanting today, that we see many problems in society like ecological imbalance and man trying to exploit other men. Having this outlook and trying to live it everyday, is the solution to these problems.
