Jammu: A large number of teachers, students and people from civil society today became the part of “Prakriti Vandan” program by worshiping the trees and plants at their homes; and pledged to protect them in order to conserve nature. The event was jointly organized by Bhartiya Shiksha Samiti (BSS), J&K, Hindu Spiritual Service Foundation and Environment Conservation Activity.
Under this program, 8750 persons had done online registration through the medium of 36 schools working under Bhartiya Shiksha Samiti in J&K and Ladakh. They pledged to work for the conservation of nature by protecting the trees and plants around them. Today, at 10 a.m, all the family members worshiped the trees and plants in their home in a traditional manner. They even tied sacred thread around the trees and vowed to protect them.
On the occasion, RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat held a virtual dialogue with millions of people on conservation of the environment, forest, water and land. The people from Kishtwar, Doda, Bhaderwah, Rajouri, Ramban, Udhampur, Reasi, Samba and Kathua; and Zanskar and Leh in Ladakh UT enthusiastically participated in the program. The program was organized at 6000 different locations.
Shri Pradeep ji, Organizing Secretary, Bhartiya Shiksha Samiti J&K, urged the people to renounce the spirit of conquering nature. He said that we are also a part of nature, this thing has to be understood. “Environment, this word is heard a lot these days, it is also said and there is a program to celebrate it one day. The reason for this is that the way of living in the world so far is not according to the environment, it is believed that by winning nature, that way is to live by humans. We have been living like this for the last two and a half hundred years. His ill effects are now coming in front of us. His horrors are now visible. If it continues like this, then we will not be there to live life in the universe. It can also happen that the world does not exist. And so the man started thinking now, he thought that the environment should be protected,” he further said.
President of BSS J&K, Shri Ved Bhushan expressed gratitude to all the volunteers for the success of this program and vowed to continue the struggle for the cause of nature conservation.
