Earth Day Celebration gives a sense of Joy and Happiness. I am promoting the concept of #WholeHappy which describes a Happy Person, a Happy Place, and Happier People. There is no real happiness if the personal feelings of happiness are not shared with a social community with whom the person interacts on a daily basis and the person is  in a place that generates the feelings of happiness and an atmosphere conducive to happiness.

The Art of Patience involves learning the basic principles of Ecology which describe the interconnectedness, interrelatedness, and interdependence of all living creatures on planet Earth.

The principles of Ecology are applicable to human nature and human existence. Man is a social association of trillions of individual, independent living cells. Human existence depends upon mutual assistance, mutual cooperation, and mutual tolerance between members of the interacting biological community that represents the human individual. Man exists because of the living functions performed by individual members of a biotic or biological community.

BHAVANAJAGAT  CELEBRATES  EARTH  DAY -  PATIENCE  IN  SUFFERING :  WE  BELONG  TO  THE  EARTH  FOR  MAN'S  EXISTENCE  IS  CONDITIONED  AND  MAN  IS  DEPENDENT  UPON  EXTERNAL  SOURCE  OF  MATTER  AND  ENERGY .
BHAVANAJAGAT CELEBRATES EARTH DAY – PATIENCE IN SUFFERING : WE BELONG TO THE EARTH FOR MAN’S EXISTENCE IS CONDITIONED AND MAN IS DEPENDENT UPON EXTERNAL SOURCE OF MATTER AND ENERGY .

Existence of man is conditioned. Man is dependent on an external source of energy and matter during all the days of his life’s journey on planet Earth.

EARTH DAY CELEBRATION, WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22, 2009:

In the United States, on Wednesday, April 22, 2009 Earth Day is  celebrated . This tradition of celebrating planet Earth began in April 1970 and it intends to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s natural environment. Earth is the natural home for all humans, plants, and the animals that inhabit this planet. We need to learn to keep this home safe, and healthy for the sake of our future generations. Earth’s resources should be used in a wise and judicious manner. We need to accept the stewardship of the planet and act to preserve and protect the plants and the animals that share their lives with us. 

INDIAN TRADITIONS ABOUT EARTH’S ROLE 

In the ancient Indian scripture of RIG VEDA, Mother Earth or PRITHVI MATA is described as the primordial goddess. She is also known by the names of Bhumi, Dhra, Dharti, Dhrithri, and Dharani all of which refer to her sustaining beneficence as “that which holds everything”. Akaasha(SKY), Vaayu(WIND), Agni(FIRE), Jalam or Varuna(WATER), and Bhumi or Prithvi(EARTH) are described as ‘PANCHA MAHA BHUTAS’ or the Five Great Elemental States of the material Nature or PRAKRITI. She is the consort of Lord Vishnu, the Divine Protector of the Hindu Trinity. Earth represents the female principle of fertility and is the source of all vegetation and is responsible for precious and bountiful crops and fruits that it yields. She is the sustainer and the preserver of the Cosmic Balance. She stands up to the rights of the living entities and defends them from Cosmic Forces and Energies. She symbolizes  the concept of a just and stable universe. She represents dedication to  maintenance of ‘DHARMA’  or Righteous Action which defines the Universal Order. She bears witness to all of our actions and particularly the actions of miscreants and evildoers who transgress the rights of weak and innocent denizens living in her domain. She mutely observes the acts of depredations and oppression. She endures all kinds of suffering with calmness and displays a great quality of patience. However, there are natural limits to her forbearance.When stressed beyond her limits of threshold and particularly to uphold the vital principle of DHARMA, she cries out aloud, calls for  attention of all gods, and insistently demands for  intervention of Lord Vishnu, the Divine Protector.

PATIENCE IN SUFFERING

Indians find encouragement  in developing perseverance in the face of trials and tribulations of many kinds. The idea that Mother Earth is a witness to their pain and suffering provides man a sense of comfort and enables man to endure suffering with a sense of hope and  expectation of deliverance. Indians are culturally driven to face calamities with calmness as they hope that Mother Earth would intervene on their behalf. Being patient is a quality t imparted to the human character by Mother Earth.
