VKNARDEP : Newsletter August 2012

Dear Friend of VK-nardep,
This month newsletter brings you the concept of an eight-fold platform for deep ecology and its implications for society and environmental protection. This is an excerpt from eco-philosopher Eric Katz's article titled, 'Deep Ecology: Faith, God and Nature' . He expresses wonderfully thus: " Because I identify with the rest of the natural world, I care for the rest of creation. I expand myself outward to include an interest in the value and flourishing of the entire natural environment. I come to understand that I can only fully realize myself through the flourishing—the Self-realization—of the entire natural universe."

In this month activity we bring you news about our Azolla training, Bio-methanation plants installations and workshop on traditional bone-setting techniques. In the publication section we bring you information on our Varma Points chart. This is the first time such an exhaustive visual documentation which is reliable, clear and attractive has been made in this field. This has helped many Vaidyas to explain to their patients what Varma points they are using instead of making the patient feel bewildered. This increases the respectability and reliability of the system. This chart is only one of the important first milestones in the long journey of traditional medical knowledge conservation and revival.

In our wisdom section we bring you three views on nature, life and peace. An excerpt from the famed article titled 'Nature' by Ralph Waldo Emerson; An excerpt from a talk of Swami Vivekananda which explains the concept of involution and grandoneness of all life and Thich Nhat Hanh on how to cultivate peace.

You can download it all here and VK-nardep wishes you a great reading experience.
