Vedic Vision of Nature:

Vedic Vision of Nature The Vedic seers lived in Nature and were inspired by Her. Nature as a Mother sustained their lives with fruits, vegetables, pure water and air. Nature as a Cosmic Being inspired their minds and hearts with Its vastness and transcendental dimension. The Vedic seers with the simplicity of a child wondered at the phenomenon of Nature - the vast sky, the dawn, the trees, the clouds, the lightning, the rains - they observed these closely and marvelled at them. Through their deep Spiritual Insight they saw a Divine Cosmic Order (Rita) which governed all Life and Nature. The Cosmic Order imparted Nature with its transcendental beauty. The seers spontaneously poured out their visions through succinct poetic expressions, which were so sublime that the boundary between natural beauty and divinity became thin, and appreciation of Nature became worship of Nature. Elements of Nature were seen as divinities to whom the seers prayed for their sustenance. Nature as a whole was like the consort of the Virat Purusha (Cosmic Being). Within that Cosmic Order a great Yajna or cycle of exchange is going on continuously, as if the Virat Purusha is being worshipped by offerings within these exchanges.
