Annotation:Motivated by the conviction that the world’s religions have an important role to play in addressing the global environmental crisis, Dwivedi and Tiwari set out to identify “the Hindu concept of ecology”. After discussing various aspects of Hinduism in relation to the environment, they conclude that Hinduism has long cultivated a deep respect for nature and a vision of ecological harmony through its scriptures and customs. The “partnership-cum-stewardship ethic” it espouses suggests that India has an important role to play in the realm of global environmental.
