It is really amazing how far our elders thought thousands of years back. They understood that our prosperity lies on prosperity of nature. The above shloka which is read by us in all religious functions has such a deep meaning.

Heaven - Sky - Earth - Water - Plants - Trees - Gods - Brahman - All - Me

How well it goes starting from Heaven ending on Me. They knew that real prosperity lies in prosperity of all especially all natural constituents. They knew that only when Earth, Water, Plants and Trees will prosper that we will be able to really prosper.

Today we are running after economic prosperity leaving all others behind. The way we have polluted our water, degraded our forests (plants and trees) we will not be able to realize that REAL PROSPERITY.

They realized that real prosperity will only be there if all prosper, by all they don't mean only we humans but all living beings be it a small ant or largest of all Whale. The cycle of life, death and rebirth has been so well devised. Only good karma will lead you to better life in next birth but finally you have to reach the parmatma only then your soul will rest in eternal peace with its maker. For reaching the parmatma you have to do good deeds, righteous karma and breach the continuous cycle of death and rebirth.

How correct they were, only your righteous karma will bring prosperity for all.

Om, Shanti, Shanti, Shanti

ॐ शान्तिः शान्तिः शान्तिः ॥
