Worshiping Nature is First Step Towards Spiritualism

 

 

“Lord Krishna”

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spiritualism is everywhere in some form and practices, the years old belief and tradition being carried out is not uncommon to any civilization. For me the nature and spirituality is two wheels of the civilization. That why the civilization developed on bank of rivers in all the countries like Egyptian, Mohenjo-Daro, Harappa and modern cities all dwell near rivers. People use to pray as well as dread nature. We have instances of worshiping nature in different forms in almost all the world from primitive time to present time.

In India “Nature is Very Holy” it means that there is large number of holy practices done for nature. For instance, Hindus have custom of offering water to Sun ‘God Surya’ in the dawn. Special prayers are offered to rivers and cows. In fact cow is considered as mother in Hindu religion and is considered as able to cure many problems and diseases, how can we forget Lord Krishna’s affection towards cow. It’s astonishing that Krishna’s village main source of income was dairy and dairy products. And the village “Vrindavan and Brij” was very rich and prosperous and use to pay high revenue to the king with great ease. Cow is given high respect and considered as ‘Mata or Mother’ in Hindu household.

 

 

Many trees are also worshiped in India and have mythological importance; the combining of nature with holy beliefs had big reasons. In simple words Nature, is principle and whole universe is at its dependability. Disturbing nature means you are letting the universe in danger. The changing tradition, industrialization has become lethal to mankind and for posterity. It’s important that we all understand the basis of civilization and nature first then proceed; this will help in good development of society, city and nations. We should all come together in preserving he culture and keeping the modern trends in equilibrium.

My instance of Sun as God is simply to pull your attention towards global warming. Cows and cattle folk are losing importance and are being slaughtered brutally across the world. My heart cries seeing the plight of rivers in India and cows brutally skinned for taste and leather.

Amazing Araku Valley and Borra Caves

Its looks like ribbon of a maiden is flowing over a green dress…Araku Valley

Araku valley is must see off-beaten tourist destination from Vizag 115kms away, offers lovely scenic view of nature and valley is really splendid rich with vegetation. The valley is 600 to 900 above sea level and gives mesmerizing treat of nature. It is easily scaled by road but I would suggest better go by train, you will enjoy more, around more than 58 tunnels and 84 bridges come on the way and this is really a terrific  experience of beauty, darkness and sweet smell of filter coffee sold by vendors in train.The coffee plantation offers a aroma in atmosphere and draws your mind towards the awesome plantations. The weather is pleasant thorough out the year.

Thematic Light Effects in Paleolithic Borra Caves

Borra caves, you can witness here paleolithic caves million year old, nestled deep at the height of 800-1300 m from mean sea level. Borra caves was uncovered by British geologist William King in 1807. What makes Borra caves unique is its structure of stalagmite and stalactite. The weird formation of lime deposits looks amazing and the thematic lighting presentation, which gives the cave mystifying and alluring experience to its visitors and makes us think of long forgotten civilization.

A mythology is associated with Borra caves that Lord Rama stayed here with wife and brother during exile and this particular forest is believed as Kishkinda forest of that period.

I have visited both the places eight years back and feeling good to write little bit about this lovely place. I was very much attracted with the localities, their innocence, beauty, handicrafts everything, tribal people are nice and welcoming.

“Beckoning Valley of Flowers”

Aside

“Valley of Flowers” the name seems to be an instance from fairytale. Isn’t it folks! But it really exists in India. Here I will give a brief account of an interesting place which is called as “Valley of Flowers.” As the name signifies, so is the place.Other name of spirituality is nature the pious and unspoiled.

Once, I heard its reference in my geography class when I was in 7th grade. Valley of flowers is basically an Indian national park nestled in West Himalaya which comes in the region of Uttarakhand. The whole valley is adorned with meadows of endemic alpine flowers and numerous exotic and rare breeds of flora. The highly vegetation reached area has rare and endangered fauna like Asiatic Black Beer, Snow Leopard, Musk Deer, Brown Bear, Blue Sheep etc.  The valley is home for numerous lovely variety of bird species.In July 2005, it was declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.

‘Valley of Flowers’ is 3352 to 3658 meters above sea level. The park is spread over the expanse of 8km long and 2km wide.  There is very interesting story associated with this place. In the year 1931, Frank S. Smythe, Eric Shipton and R.L. Holdsworth all British mountaineers got lost their way back from their adventurous expedition to Mt. Kamet and they lost the trail, they wandered into the valley and was astounded by seeing the panoramic view of the valley, it was beautifully blooming with several colors of flower and in different varieties. The view was so mesmerizing that they were so astounded that they spontaneously named it “Valley of Flowers.”  Later on Frank Smythe penned a book with the same title.

“Valley of Flowers” is located in inner Himalayan valley. The valley has micro-climate and is very well guarded by Himalaya from severity of southwest summer monsoon. The valley is snow covered for six to seven months from October to march. The valley comes to life when snow melts and life blooms with nature’s brightest colors, the valley turns up dotted with rainbow of colors and is not less than fairyland. The lovely spring season brings joyous colors of nature and valley looks lively, rapture and divine abode. The lush greenery, embellished with hues of nature is really hypnotizing, a completely fascinating and unforgettable eye feasting beauty! Cherishing memory whoever visit this unique place.

My Mind is Traveling Leaving Me Behind, The Dream to Travel is Leaving Me Crazy

My Mind is Traveling Without Me

Today I am bewildered, my mind is trying to break free, where it would go, quiet difficult to know. But today for sure my mind is traveling,  its not with me and left out to journey alone. It happens some time we are lost in something, everything goes hazy and blurred, I am in trance for no known reasons. I am bewildered how my mind can fly to such places which i have not been thought.

My thought are transcending all boundaries, touching different realms of nature, culture, habitat and people. Its sure my subconscious mind which want to break free today and get the taste of different things. It seems I am dissolving myself in euphoria of going away and exploring the vast world. The universe around me pulling my inner self more and more away from me.

The more I resist myself from parting away my feelings, more I am getting into the magic of transcending, I am helpless, but I admit, I am letting my mind go where it wants to wander, May be my mind wants to enjoy all sort of things which I physically cannot achieve. The life is small, the world is vast, dynamic, the more I get into it, i am getting perplexed.

The horizon, the blue water, the deep forest, the giant mountains, the glaciers, the beautiful landscapes, animals, birds all creatures, there is so much, the secrets behind civilization, the told and untold mysteries, the dry land, deserts all are beckoning me come and see, come and unfold the secrets, explore the truth of nature and learn what nature loves and how much it has lost by menace of mankind.

M mind is happy seeing the beautiful aspects of nature, wildlife, spirituality, mythology, the folktales. Today my mind is asking me not to stop the feelings, its forcing me to get into the labyrinth of life and nature and experience the hidden mystery. I am afraid of getting lost, but i can sense the energy flowing into me, may be I want to travel, explore and discover the objective of nature and mystery of spirituality. I want to be a wanderer, with the motive of saving the world from getting destroyed so much of heat, high pressure on land, forest area is shrinking, the glaciers are melting, desert are expanding, rivers are drying,many flora and fauna are endangered animals and birds species loosing their existence. This beautiful world is loosing its sheen, its softness, its nature is getting lost and troubled. My mind is saying I can’t survive anymore I am leaving you. We have also threatened our life. Can we live in separation of nature, what if we have no night and day, oh it gives me creep, my inner-self is crying, how it will be, sure a hell.

Now i understood, why my mind is traveling without me, because it knows, the world is changing, its better to visit the nature and culture before its get too late to enjoy the bliss of native world, things are changing and so the world. My mind is saying please no stop, already enough plastic surgery you have done to this planet, let it not lose its originality, Save Earth, my mind is traveling without me, before its too late.
