Biological Factors in the Veda and Their Impact on the Ecology
Author(s): Mitali Goswami
Abstract: The nature is an ecosystem. The biological components, i.e., sun, moon, earth etc., the part of the nature maintain close relationship with others for their survival in the ecosystem. Highly influenced by the natural powers, i.e., heat, raining, storm, lightning, big stone etc., the Vedic seers started to worship them superimposing a deity behind each and every phenomena of nature. They eulogized and tried to satisfy them so that they would not make any harm to them and protect them in each and every danger. The Vedic seers were great scientists and ecologists. The inter relationship of the natural objects were well noticed by them in ecological manner in the Vedic mantras. In the paper entitled “Biological Factors in the Vedas and their Impact on the Ecology”, a modest attempt is made to find out the impact of biological factors towards the Ecology, taking the Vedic verses in mind.
