GITA AND ENVIORNMENT

Food

Food is the life of all beings, and all food comes from rain above. Sacrifice brings the rain from heaven, and sacrifice is sacred action.
(3:12)


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Forces of Nature

All actions take place in time by the interweaving of the forces of Nature; but the man lost in selfish delusion thinks that he himself is the actor.

But the man who knows the relation between the forces of Nature and actions, sees how some forces of Nature work on other forces of Nature, and becomes not their slave.

Those who are under the delusion of the forces of Nature bind themselves to the work of these forces. Let not the wise man who sees the All disturb the unwise who sees not the All.
(3:27-29)

Supreme Spirit in Nature

The visible forms of my nature are eight: earth, water, fire, air, ether; the mind, reason, and the sense of 'I'.

But beyond my visible nature is my invisible Spirit. This is the fountain of life whereby this universe has its being.

All things have their life in this Life, and I am their beginning and end.

In this whole vast universe there is nothing higher than I. All the worlds have their rest in me, as many pearls upon a string.

I am the taste of living waters and the light of the sun and the moon. I am OM, the sacred word of the Vedas, sound in silence, heroism in men.

I am the pure fragrance that comes from the earth and the brightness of fire I am. I am the life of all living beings, and the austere life of those who train their souls.

And I am from everlasting the seed of eternal life. I am the intelligence of the intelligent. I am the beauty of the beautiful.
(7:4-10)

The Creation

All this visible universe comes from my invisible Being. All beings have their rest in me, but I have not my rest in them.

And in truth they rest not in me: consider my sacred mystery. I am the source of all beings, I support them all, but I rest not in them.

Even as the mighty winds rest in the vastness of the ethereal space, all beings have their rest in me. Know thou this truth.

At the end of the night of time all things return to my nature; and when the new day of time begins I bring them again into light.

Thus through my nature I bring forth all creation, and this rolls round in the circles of time.

But I am not bound by this vast work of creation. I am and I watch the drama of works.

I watch and in its work of creation nature brings forth all that moves and moves not: and thus the revolutions of the world go round.
(9:4-10)

Nature and Spirit

Know that Prakriti, Nature, and Purusha, Spirit, are both without beginning, and that temporal changes and Gunas, conditions, come all from nature.

Nature is the source of all material things: the maker, the means of making, and the things made. Spirit is the source of all consciousness which feels pleasure and feels pain.

The spirit of man when in nature feels the ever-changing conditions of nature. When he binds himself to things ever-changing, a good or evil fate whirls him round through life-in-death.

But the Spirit Supreme in man is beyond fate. He watches, gives blessing, bears all, feels all. He is called the Lord Supreme and the Supreme Soul.

He who knows in truth this Spirit and knows nature with its changing conditions, wherever this man may be he is no more whirled round by fate.
(13:19-23)




The present age is the age of science and technology. Now we are equipped with the latest technology in war, medical, agriculture and other fields of life. But, still we are unable to cope with the problems existing in today’s world. There are different types of problem- the problem of unemployment, the scarcity of drinking water, sanitation and providing good health to all and many other problems also. Like Sursa (a demon of ancient time) they are standing before us with opened mouth. They all need their solutions. Solutions of these problems can be found in the Bhagvad Gita when looked upon it with reverence and faith.
Now, Let us first consider the origin of Bhagvad Gita. Gita was preached to Arjuna by lord Krishna when there was a great war to take place. This was a war between tyrants and tyranny-affected people. A war between right and wrong. Dr. Sharma writes “Gita is like a big light house standing in the middle of the world. Its rays are scattered in all directions. There is no doubt that in its guidance we can solve all our problems.” Now come to the point of problems-the one is unemployment. Daily the newspapers are colored with black lines giving information about the students and unemployed persons committing suicide. The problem is standing because a person is not entitled to the kind of work he is able to perform well. Merely passing some examination does not mean that one is able for that work. Ability comes from within. It is a natural instinct which can’t be changed. Geeta says’’ one’s own dharma, whether it has some shortcoming, is better than that of others”. Here the word ‘dharma’ does not mean any kind of religion or creed. Dharma means one’s own natural instinct which all living beings follow since their birth. Even the non-living things also have their dharma. To make things wet is the natural quality of water. Fire will burn whatever comes in its contact. Stone will not leave hardness whether pounded to utmost possibility. Thus every man follows his own instinct quality. And it is good thing that every one must develop oneself within his limit. It is good for him and others also. When a man gets a work congenial to his nature, he puts all energy into it and thus the creativity is increased. The second problem is scarcity of pure drinking water. Geeta says” It is a sin to accumulate anything more than one needs”. Whether we accumulate or use something in excess both are the same things. People use water regardless to others. They leave the tap open to flow. When they are told to close the taps after use, they reply’’ I pay the bill for it”. Yes! You pay money for that. But have you ever thought money is man made. Can you make water also? Thus if we pay proper heed to others’ needs we can save a lot of things which can be used by needy persons. Come to the problem of sanitation. Bhagvad Gita says” It is everyone’s sacred duty whatever he has taken from the society must return to it”. It was the reason that the system of yajna came into existence. Can any wise man deny the fact that every thing which is being consumed will finish one day if it is not created new. This is known to everyone that we all breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide which is absorbed by the plants and trees. This keeps the environment in proper balance. But in the recent years, cutting of the forests in a great amount has resulted in the environment pollution. And now the situation is getting worse and worse. Can’t we understand easily that there is a great need of plants to be implanted in large amount to protect our environment from pollution? Yajna makes the environment pure to the great extent. The materials and mantra used in the performance of yajna make the environment clean and pure. Now, let’s see how we can solve the problem of providing good health to everyone in the light of Geeta. When the problem of unemployment, scarcity of drinking water and sanitation are solved, the problem of good health to every one itself will be solved. Because there will be everything in good quantity for all to use. Thus it is clear that any problem whether it is individual, national or international can be solved in the light of Bhagvad Gita.
