The Message Ganga is Giving Us

Dear Divine Souls, I hope that – by God’s grace – this finds you and all your loved ones in the best of health and happiness at this sacred time. The 18th of June marked Ganga Dussehra, the day we lovingly refer to as “Gangaji’s Birthday.” It is the day on which we commemorate the time when, answering the tapasya and incessant prayers of King Bhagirath, Ganga flowed down from the heavens to the Earth. Ganga did not flow down merely because She wanted to, but rather with a very specific purpose –...

Biodiversity and Nature: Our Responsibility

The subject of biodiversity is a very ancient, complex topic which is addressed in the Vedas as part and parcel of India’s cultural heritage. The entire realm of nature is composed of five basic elements, each one inseparable from the others. These elements are: earth (Prithvi), water (jal), air (vayu), fire (agni) and sky (akash). However, according to our ancient traditions, these elements are not seen as only bio-chemical compounds. Rather, they are revered, respected and worshipped as divine. As these forces are what give us life and sustain us, we...
