Characteristics of Nature

1. Nature is not created by human beings. Nature has its own universe and is governed by its own laws.

2. Nature is not dependent on human beings. Nature can survive even without the existence of human beings.

3. Nature sustains human beings. Nature provides fruits, vegetables and other food grains. Nature provides raw materials for various commodities.

4. Nature has a well-ordered system. Nature self-sustains itself and all lives by its process which is well-ordered.

5. Nature has beauty. This beauty captivates the poetic tendency hidden within human beings. There is beauty in the flowers, beauty in the clouds and beauty in the rivers.

6. Nature has vastness. In this vastness human soul often tend to lose itself. There is vastness in the mountain ranges, there is vastness in the horizon and the sky, there is vastness in the ocean.

7. Nature has peace. The vastness of Nature tend to permeate the core of human beings with peace. Once can sense the presence of that peace by standing amidst a mountain range or a forested valley.

8. Nature has dynamism. Day moves on and becomes night. Seasons come and affect lives all around. Lightning and thunder sends a sense of thrill within.

9. Nature has diversity. The dynamism of Nature presents itself in diverse forms. different colours and patterns appear in different seasons and adds colour to our lives.

10. Nature operates on a large scale. Same vegetation grow covering many miles, rain falls covering many cities and Sun shines covering many countries.

11. Nature operates for all. The Sun shines for all. The rain falls for all. This unselfishness of Nature makes us think that Nature is close to divinity.

12. Nature points to the source of life. This is what the Vedic seers discovered through their spiritual insight. Thus Nature has a very important place in Sanatana Dharma.

The Vedic Vision of Nature combines Nature with Sadhana. The first step is to embrace Nature by reflecting on its characteristics. The next step is to connect with Nature.
