The Vedic prayer invokes divine intervention to bless and protect the environment. …

The Vedic prayer invokes divine intervention to bless and protect the environment.
"Do not harm the environment;
do not harm the water and the flora;
earth is my mother, I am her son; …
Tranquility be to the atmosphere,
to the earth,
to the waters,
to the crops and vegetation."
"Whatever I dig from thee,
O Earth,
may that have quick recovery again.
O purifier,
may we not injure thy vitals or thy heart".

The Seers of Rig Veda speak on behalf of earth for its Principle of Replenishment,
"You give me and I give you".But we forgot it in our over enthusiasm and have evidently lost much.
There is not an easy solution now to workwell for everyone, but there are solutions that do work.
Open minds about the power of common efforts can give us another opportunity.
