Description

Traditionally the edifice of culture has been built on its distinctiveness from nature: culture is a human institution while nature is the exterior realm; culture encompasses human endorsed rules, values and exercise of will while nature ordains its own operation. However, most cultures have held nature in high esteem. In India, the earth has been conceived of as ?mother?. The concept of ishavasyam entails that divinity resides everywhere in nature and hence, it must be revered.
