Importance of World Nature Conservation Day
World Nature Conservation Day acknowledges that a healthy environment is a foundation for a balanced and dynamic society and to make sure the well-being of present and future generations, we must contribute to protect, conserve and sustainably manage our natural resources.
What is the meaning of conservation of nature?
Conservation is like preservation, both connect to the protection of nature, wherein efforts are undertaken in different ways. Conservation strives for the sustainable use of nature by humans, for activities such as hunting, logging, or mining, while preservation means safeguarding nature from human use.
The natural resources consist of air, minerals, plants, soil, water, and wildlife. Conservation is the care and protection of these reserves so that they can stay for future generations. It involves retaining the diversity of species, genes, and ecosystems, as well as functions of the environment, such as nutrient cycling.
How can we get involved in practicing sustainability?
We should make efforts to create more and more awareness to reduce human population growth. The increased human population leads to unsustainable rates of consumption of our natural resources. It results in a loss of Earth’s biodiversity due to several losses including habitat destruction, climate change, invasive species, overexploitation, and pollution. Our efforts to protect biodiversity will gradually stop species extinction.
Why no consistency in Nature?
The enlightened Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj differentiates the ephemeral realm with the immortal realm. He denies the permanent existence of Maya’s world. While explaining the concept of the world Saint talks about two realms of existence
- Ephemeral Realm is the world in which we live. Here everything is perishable, ever-changing, and bound by time and space. It is embroiled with Nature (Prakriti, Maya).
- It is unreal, illusory, perishable and a vain world, even though it seems to be real.
- It is the gross creation and made up of five major elements. Sant Rampal Ji Maharaj warns against worldly attachments.
“Kabīra isa sansāra kā, jhūṭhā māyā mōha.
Jihi ghari jitā badhāvaṇā, tihi ghari titā andōha.”
“Kabeer saathee hamaare chale gae, ham bhee chaalan haar.
koee kaagaj mein baakee rah rahee, taate laag rahee vaar.”
This world is our actual home, this is accepted by ignorant people only while the seekers search for God’s pathway. Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj guarantees the devotees to make them get rid of the vicious cycle of death and rebirth through following the true devotion by taking name initiation from him. Sant quotes one rhyme of Supreme God Kabir,
“Bhav bandhan se leoon chhudaee, nirmal karoon shareera.
sur nar muni koee bhed na paavai, paavai sant gambheera.”
- Immortal Realm is the world of ‘Satpurusa’. Where the only reality is God. The realm of Truth is the real world. Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj says that the supreme god Kabir Saheb dwells in the eternal abode Satlok where all kinds of pleasures are availed and there is no karmic theory for death and birth. He refers to a Rhyme of Supreme God Kabir,
“Gagan mandal mein baasa mera, nauvain kamal pramaana.
brahm beej ham hee se aaya, banee jo moorti naana.
sankhon lahar mehar kee upajain, baaje anahad baaja.
gupt bhed vaahee ko denge, sharan hamaree aaja.”

We all are in bondage of Maya and Kaal, and they torture us in several ways. Our real home is the eternal abode. Supreme God Kabir is our Supreme Father. We can be free from the bondage of Nature by taking name initiation from the Jagatguru Tatvdarshi Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj. The seekers must listen to the sermons of Saint Rampal Ji Maharaj on “SA News YouTube Channel” and read his book “Way of Living” for better understanding.
