“Godliness in Greenery”

“Godliness in Greenery”
So true to core. If we love god we should first be lover of our own surroundings, protector of nature, care taker of mother nature.

My family welcomes Ganesha on auspicious day of ganpati chaturthi and since childhood we are taught about all the preparations that begin a week ahead of the chaturthi.

Yes we take care that house is cleaned so is the temple and all surroundings but never on the cost of troubling environment. Since childhood in Indian culture or anywhere kids are taught that God made us, God made this nature and beautiful Earth so how can we not be with nature if celebrating for ourselves.

Call it God or the supreme deity or that super natural power who controls the day to day life.
We should be thankful to all for our presence.
The presence of the power is everywhere be it Sun, Sea, Sand or Sky.



Power/ God is everywhere, in all living happenings and activities around us.
And so we need to take care of all of these.
Be it plants we keep to decorate our house, in pets we keep, in books we read.
The people those who visit our homes or whom we meet.
Be it the helper, maid, paper-vendor, milkman all who help us are important to us and they need to be thanked. Whoever we meet be it vegetable or grocer, shopkeeper or vendor...all in some or the other way effect our life. God have sent them in our lives for some purpose so we should be thankful to them and realize there presence and thank God for them as they are his creations too.

To protect and save nature along with living beings we need to keep non living things too clean n cared.
Be it the road we walk, or water we drink or use.

It has to come naturally from within to protect and care our surroundings,
keep them clean, respect every being.

We have not formed this nature so its our first responsibility to take care of what we got free of cost else we will have to pay later. We should take care that our leisure of celebrations should not harm it in any way.

If we harm the sea river lakes by putting garbage we are harming all aquatic animals in it and this means we are exploiting nature and creations of God which we have no right to do.
If we harm animals around us or spread litter we are not helping to maintain beauty of nature, we are exploiting the resources available to us again for which we don't have right.

If we have not created those natural springs and spaces then we don't either have right to spoil them.

When festivals are around i had tried my best to put in my effort...since last year i go for Eco friendly material Ganesha idol which is made up of mud/ soil instead of POP which is harmful for water creatures.
We never realized this but its the high time now. The POP made idols just create harm to all aquatic creatures and we just shed our responsibility..No no more now.

So make it a point to buy the biodegradable idol or material which will not harm aqua life, the sea, the lakes.
Make it a point to burn soft crackers instead of bomb n waste money in burning. i myself never understood what fun people get in burning money in way of crackers. I personally don't blow crackers instead just love to lit diyas and candles and thank god for all the light we have.

We should Thank god for the trees around us which gives us daily oxygen, just imagine a minute without oxygen and you will realize its not easy. so instead take care of environment and Thank the power of earth the nature around us.

Celebrate cracker free Diwali or instead have small pooled cracker show instead of taking part in more the merrier competition. Celebrate ganesh chaturthi and durga puja with Eco friendly idols instead of competing on size and decor.

The celebration should be from soul and faith and "shradhha" and not to show off.
we have to worship from within not just to show the world that we did.
We have no right to spoil what we have not created.

why just festivals otherwise also we need to protect earth in every possible way. Last year i visited mountains and was sad to see the growing hotel industry after cutting trees. If we have not created the mountains what right do we have to cut them.

God and its worship is in taking care....Godliness is in greenery, in protecting nature and environment. and make earth a more better place to live for our future generations. God is everywhere the saying told to us as children still is applicable. The holy books too say that"Cleanliness is next to Godliness" .
There is an super power protecting us so lets also protect us. Lets worship and take care of all living or non living things around us. Be more responsible and reliable citizens.
Maintaining cleanliness leads us to become more humane humans.
We have to be physically, mentally as well as socially clean.

Lots of efforts are being taken what we just need to do is add out bit and support the cause.
Instead of just cribbing its now our duty to see that we are no harming even a single being or things.
