Contamination - an essential subject
Contamination has become an important theme in society. Contamination of the air, the rivers & oceans, the water, the soil - practically there is very little left in our earth's environment that is not contaminated.
However contaminated consciousness has yet to be discussed widely. Actually all forms of envirionmenental contaminations have come from people with contaminated consciousness. Fixing the contamiated consciousness is the only true way to fix the environment. Because our inner world is contaminated, our acts, thoughts and our dealing and behavior is affected as well. That's why there is so much misfortune and unhappiness in this world.
If we purify our existence, fighting our lusty and greedy tendencies through spiritual practices and discipline as described in Bhagavad-gita, we wil improve not only our life but also the atmosphere and environment around us.
