T he nature has always been associated with God in India. We have been worshiping trees, rivers, mountain, fire, water, wind, animals, birds, reptiles, insects in the form of God and Goddesses.
That being so, the purpose of education in ancient India, was aimed at helping human beings achieve resemblance to God's perfection, his nature of multiplication, adaptation, love and affection, and his nature of dominion. We must continue learning from nature.
Its our sacred duty to preserve nature- the greatest teacher.
