Some simple observations on Nature and Hinduism We humans are a part of nature. But quite often we forget this fact. We behave as if we are above it. The wise men of ancient times might have foreseen this.Take a look at the two of the most popular gods in Hinduism – Lord Ganesh and Lord Hanuman.Cow protection and worship of snakes are other examples. Today, we might criticize the worship of animals. But it is a clever method to indicate the oneness of all that lives.Forests play a key role in Hinduism. After finishing the worldly duties, people use to head for the forest (Vanaprastha). When close to the nature, it feels great. We forget our worries. It brings a smile.
