Connecting with Nature

1. Connecting with Nature with a sense of gratitude. Because Nature sustains us with food, water, air and brings diversity in our lives.

2. Connecting with Nature feeling its beauty. Because Nature touches our aesthetic sense and awakens the poet within us.

3. Connecting with Nature feeling its vastness. Because Nature through its vastness makes us feel the presence of a vast life inside us.

4. Connecting with Nature feeling its divine presence. This is the attitude of the Vedic seers. Behind the well-ordered system of Nature they felt the presence of divine forces.

5. Connecting with Nature realising the Supreme Consciousness behind everything. This is the realisation of the sages. Behind the well-ordered system of Nature they felt the presence of the Supreme Consciousness. The purity of Nature reflects the purity of the Supreme Consciousness.


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. Our connection with Nature need to deepen progressively. The lowest in the rung is to look at Nature as a commodity. Then comes looking at Nature with a neutral attitude. These two cannot be considered as a connection in the true sense. Hence the first connection with Nature is the connection with a sense of gratitude. From there the connection deepens gradually. Our connection with Nature deepens when we become more and more pure and expansive internally. Sadhana aims at that purification and expansion. The Vedic Vision of Nature combines Sadhana with the symbolism of Nature.
