Harmony in Nature:

Harmony in Nature   Our world today may be described as an age of confusions and tensions, both within and outside of us. A beautiful life is one that is ‘in harmony’ with the situations in life . In fact ‘Harmony is a precious treasures of human life. Real success, satisfaction and happiness are different facts of harmony. If one is to enjoy the benefit of life to the fullest, it is necessary to develop and maintain harmony. The law of nature has a unique cause and effect system which must be understood in order to be in harmony with the natural law of things. Natural harmony is necessary for the following reasons: Natural harmony is necessary to solve the problem of global warming and depletion of non- renewable natural resource can be avoided. Natural harmony with trees cure all problems like – reduction of wind velocity, energy savings, doing companion planting, development of an eco-subsystem in terms of establishing a forest garden, reduction of building heat. It is possible to achieve natural harmony in the establishment, maintenance and management of educational institution like schools, colleges and universities. One can understand the depths of harmony and alignment in natural by contemplating and reflecting upon the natural order. It is possible to unravel the mystery of the natural synthesis in the midst of ongoing chaos at the material plane.

Definition of Nature:

Definition of Nature All the physical objects that are in solid, liquid or gas state either living or non living, collectively termed as nature. In other words, the aggregate of all the mutually interacting units – big or small, sentient or insentient together can be called nature. These units are infinite in number and we could easily observe that there exists a dynamic balance, self regulation among all these units. To facilitate understanding, we can categorize all these units into four orders. There are four orders of nature: Material order Pranic /Plant order Animal order Human order

PowerPoint Presentation:

Material order : The big land mass of the continents, gigantic water bodies like ocean and seas, mountains and rivers, the atmosphere above, the heaps of metals and mineral below, the dense gases and fossil fuels deep below the surface of the earth – all fall into the material order or padartha avastha . In fact, if we look around beyond the earth, the material order is visible even in the form of stars, planets, moons and several astronomical bodies . Pranic order : Our land mass is covered with grass and small shrubs and they form the lining on the entire soil. Shrubs, plants and trees form huge forest along with the flora in the ocean. All of this is the plant/bio order or prana avastha and it is the next big order on our planet. (The material order is far greater in quantity compared to the plant/bio order ). Animal order : Animals and birds form the third largest order and we call them the animal order or jiva avastha . Here again, we see that the plant/bio order is far greater in quantity than the animal order . Human order : Human are the smallest order and they are referred to as human order or gyana avastha . Animals are far greater in quantity as compared to the human order.

Each one of us can recognize all these four orders around ourselves and see that together. These four orders comprise of all the units that we see and understand around us. The four orders as above should not be viewed in isolation. All these are part and parcel of nature and existence. these are really mutually complementary and supplementary. They are not independent but are mutually inter-dependent. Each one nurtures and nourishes the others.

Interconnectedness and mutual fulfillment in nature Mutual fulfillment implies that each unit of the four orders is related to each other and enriching to each other . In the nature, all the units are connected to each other and fulfilling each other. Human being is related to all other human beings. On this basis, we have feelings and emotions for everyone. Human being is connected to all the material units in the existence and gets aware of it as he starts exploring it . The four orders can be distinctly recognized in terms of their characteristics, participation with other units in similar order, activities, pattern of inheritance, etc . Let us look at the first three orders namely the material, plant/bio ( pranic ) and animal order . We can easily see that they are interconnected. And the relationship between these orders is in such a way that they all fulfill each other and coexist with each other.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Material Order and Plant/Bio-Order The material order provides the nutrients to the plant/bio order in the form of soil, minerals , etc. while the plant/ bio order decays and forms more nutrient, thus enriching the soil. The plant/bio order also decays to substances like oil and coal, which are stored deep within the earth as protection against the heat from the molten core inside the earth as well as the heat from the sun ( today, this is the material we are removing and using as fuel ). Plants help move the nutrients through the various layers of the soil. The roots of the plants hold the soil together and prevent the soil from erosion. Plants produce oxygen/ carbon dioxide and thus help in the movement of the material order. There is a mutual interdependency and co-existence we can see here.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Material Order, Plant/Bio- Order and Animal Order The material orders provides the basis for movement of all animals, birds and fishes. Water, oxygen and other gases are necessities for both plants and animals. At the same time, the animal order helps enrich the soil with its excreta and this excreta helps the plants with nutrients. The plant/bio order provides food for animals, birds and fishes. The animal Order helps in pollination of the flowers of the pranic order.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Material Order, Plant/Bio- Order, Animal Order and Human Order We humans also have a natural acceptance to be mutually fulfilling to these three orders. However, we are not able to ensure this mutual fulfillment. We are dependent on the material order for soil and minerals and metals, but only end up polluting the soil and depleting the fossil fuels; we are dependent on plants for our food and holding together the larger ecosystem, but we have destroyed forests and destroyed multiple species of plants and herbs; we are dependent on animals to carry out our production and transportation activities, but have made many species of animals extinct, and are today known for our cruelty towards animals.

PowerPoint Presentation:

We thus see that the three orders besides the human order are in harmony and are fulfilling to the human order. We have not even understood our own needs properly, nor have we understand harmonious ways to fulfill our needs. Consequently , we have disturbed ourselves and also the balance amongst the other three orders. The effect of this disharmony is now affecting our lives in the form of diseases and maladies.
