Dr. Mausumi Goswami

Without environment the existence of human being can never be imagined. Human are dependent on nature. There was a very close relation between men and nature since the time of inception. This relationship made human being more conscious about their environment and its protection in which they dwelled. Thus it can be said that Environmental consciousness is an age old phenomenon of human civilization. It has seen reflected in the pages of the Vedas, which are the earliest literary monumental works of the Hindus. The Vedic seers could realize the fact that the harmonious relation between the environment and the living creatures is much beneficial for the entire globe. Nature-worship was one of the prime duties of the people of the Vedic age. In the midst of nature the ancient Indian cultures have grown and due to this reason the ancient Indians had a great admiration for environment. Since then with utmost devotion and sincerity they had worshipped various objects of nature. In fact, they attribute divinity to nature. In this way this vast literature incorporates ample references on protection and conservation of environment. In the present paper an attempt has been made to highlight the awareness of ancient Indian people about environment.
