How Does Hinduism View the
True ecology means to
recognize the Divine Self everywhere in the universe and allow its
full unfoldment on all levels and in all creatures. The ecological
movement is at least moving in the direction of respecting the
sacred nature of all life and reconnecting us with the unity of
life. Presently it represents one of the most idealistic and
progressive side of the modern psyche.
However it is still often
lacking in a spiritual perspective and while promoting a better
ethical treatment of our environment, it does not always promote a
higher standard of spiritual discipline for people and may follow
amoral political values. Yet still Hinduism sees in it a great ally
and an important trend of thought and awareness for the future.
