Religion is a bond between Man and Nature

Updated on November 29, 2007

Religion is a bond between Man and Nature

Religion helps a person to maintain awareness that he or she is not separate from nature. Without religion mankind loses that awareness. It teaches us to love nature.

Progress and prosperity of mankind depends solely on the good which man does for nature.

Religion helps to maintain a harmonious relationship between human beings, between the individual and society and between man and nature.

Trees gives us shade, but some of us cut it down to earn our livings, though it not only gives us shade but also sweet and delicious fruits to the persons who harm it.

But when we plant a tree or raise an animal, we are only concerned about the profit we are going to make from it. Look at the a milk man sells the cow to a butcher when it stops producing milk, in order to make money. If a tree stops yielding fruit, we cut it down and make furniture or something else from it.

Man is selfish, but nature is still showing selfless love to the mankind by continue giving the comforts and benefits to the human beings.

That is why our ancestors used to love and worship trees and plants like BANYAN and BILVA trees and TULSI plant, it is not because the trees bore fruits and helped them to make a profit, but because they knew that they themselves in truth were one with all of nature.

Looking to nature and observing its selfless way of giving we can become aware of our own limitations. This will help us to develop devotion and self surrender to GOD.Thus, Nature helps us to become closer to GOD and teaches us to truly worship HIM.

In reality nature is nothing but GOD's visible form which we can behold and experience through our senses.

By loving nature we are worshiping GOD, as it creates favourable circumstances through which the individual soul can reach the SUPREME BEING and merge in eternal union with HIM.

      This question is for everybody in here reading this:

      If you died tonight and you were face to face with God and He asked you "Why should I let you into my heaven and not cast you down to the lake of fire?"

      What would you're answer be? Are you sure that's the right answer? Don't assume, know for sure.
