Spiritual consciousness: A potent means of environmental protection

 Betal Chintaharan

Dept. of Naturopathy and Yoga, HNB Garhwal Central University, Srinagar Garhwal, Uttarakhand

Abstract

The indiscriminate exploitation of ecological resources such as earth, air, water, space and vegetation by human beings has created serious ecological crisis and environmental degradation. The situation has become so chronic and alarming that if appropriate measures are not taken, it may exterminate and devastate human race from the earth very shortly. Knowing the fact, many kinds of measures have been taken and implemented to protect the environment but no effective result has evolved so far. In fact, the root cause of the problem lies in the human mind. Hence, attitudinal change and behavioural modifications through the achievement of spiritual consciousness may be the potent means of environmental protection.
