...each totemic ancestor, while traveling through the country, was thought to have scattered a trail of words andmusical notes along the line of his footprints......each Ancestor, while singing his way across country, was believed to have left a trail of 'life-cells' or 'spirit- children'along the line of his footprints.

Skhanda 1.5.33 
Siddhanta Saraswati
The individual human souls are dissociable particles of the predominated moiety.Shri Radhika is the source of all individual souls...The individual souls serve Shri Krishna as constituents of Shri Radhika.The absolute nature of the personality of Shri Radhika is fully on a level with the absolute personality of Shri Krishna.Shri Krishna is the consort of Shri Radhika. The absolute is pair and singular person.Shri Radhika is at once identical with and distinct from Shri Krishna.

What if now, instead of to the wilderness, we were to look to the garden for the makings of a new ethic?In fact there is no single moment in time that we can point to and say,
is the state of nature...

Excerpts from Carol Kaesuk Yoon,"Rain Forests Seen as Shaped by Human Hand,"_New York Times_, 7.27.93:[Clark:] There is no such thing as virginityout there. It's time to overcome this lackof comprehension about humans as part of theecosystem.[Sanford:] People have at one time or anothercut and burned almost every place in thetropics.[Yoon:] ...much less of a wilderness and muchmore of a garden than anyone would previouslyhave ventured to guess.

For the Electrical fire is the spiritual substance, which God sends from heaven to sustain the bodies ofman and beast.
Jubilate Agno (ca. 1760)
Sunlight made visiblethe whole length of a sky,movement of wind,leaf, flower, all six colorson tree, bush and creeper:all thisis the day's worship.The light of moon, star, and fire,lightnings and all thingsthat go by the name of lightare the night's worship.Night and dayin your worshipI forget myselfO lord white as jasmine.
Translated by A. K. Ramanujan. Mahadevi was a 12th Century Virashaiva saint who died while in her twenties. A king had married her, but she left him to wander naked in search of God. Leaves, flowers, and lights are traditional offerings in formal Hindu religious ceremonies. Mahadevi sees the natural world practicing the same worship.

Birds make their nests in circles,for theirs is the same religion as ours.

Community is sharing a particular physical place, an environment, not only with other people but the otherbeings of the place and fully realizing that the needs of all the beings of that place affect how you live yourlife.Living and skiing at Alta all those years showed me that living on this earth is its own intrinsic rewardwhen one decides to live in one place and cultivate a lasting relationship to the other beings of that place:soil, animals, plants, beings in the sky; clouds, rain, snow, thunder, and the gods of the place....this is the way humans have lived for most of our existence on earth -- living fully with total attention toone's place -- and truly that's what it means to be alive.When one finds oneself being skied by the snow and gravity, being played by the wind, being moved bythe very air as in T'ai Chi, a breakthrough occurs 'and the distinction between subject and object becomescompletely obliterated, and the mind and
[the pattern of the universe] are realized to be one' [JosephNeedham] ... This is when the wilderness within meets the wilderness without.Powder snow skiing is not
. It's life, fully lived, life lived in a
blaze of reality 
. What we experience inpowder is the original human self, which lies deeply inside each of us, still undamaged in spite of what ourpresent culture tries to do to us. Once experienced, this kind of living is recognized as the only way to live-- fully aware of the earth and the sky and the gods and you, the mortal, playing among them.
Deep Powder Snow 
Herman Daly
(versified)I believe that God the Creatorexists now,as well as in the past and future,and is the source ofour obligation to Creation,including other creatures,and especially includingmembers of our own specieswho are suffering.Our ability and inclinationto enrich the presentat the expense of the future,and of other species,is as real and as sinfulas our tendencyto further enrich the wealthyat the expense of the poor.To hand back to Godthe gift of Creationin a degraded statecapable of supporting less life,less abundantly,and for a shorter future,is surely a sin.If it is a sin to kill and to steal,then it is a sinto destroy carrying capacity --the capacity of the earthto support lifenow and in the future.Sometimes we find ourselvesin an impassein which sins are unavoidable.We may sometimes have tosacrifice future lifeto preserve present life --but to sacrifice future lifeto protect presentluxury and extravaganceis a very different matter.The hard problem isovercoming our addictionto growthas the favored wayto assert our creative power,and the idolatrous belief --whether we thinkin religious terms or not --that our derived creative poweris autonomous and unlimited.
