“One of the first conditions of happiness is that the link between man and nature shall not be broken.”

- Leo Tolstoy

Man and Nature

Today, the world is acutely aware of the crisis facing our Mother Nature; the future of ecological balance will impact the next phase of earthly evolution. Solutions are being frantically sought – from science, spirituality, industry, arts; terms like conscious consumerism, ecological living are becoming commonplace among the   elite. But the truest, the deepest, the most sustainable and effective solution lies in the evolution of consciousness – in the movement from Avidya to Vidya, from the consciousness of Multiplicity to the consciousness of Oneness, oneness with all Nature, all Existence, all Beings. In the movement of Love.

So it happens that that day, saw the simple bundle of simple PVC pipes… They were being carried to the site of requirement: the pipes connected to the motor for drawing water and pumping to the water tanks (the reservoirs) having developed snags, necessitating the repair and change. And a submersible water pump, drilled underneath it is…
