Preserving and protecting sacred groves in India




Mr. M.R. Hubert from Shabnam Resources presented a paper on 13th Feb 2011 during a national seminar about preserving and protecting sacred groves in India. 



Sacred groves in India are a patch of mild forest containing rare species of plants mostly herbal, insects, birds and most importantly, a very serene and peaceful environment. These forests would range from the size of 300 acres to 10,000 acres. Indians consider these sacred groves are protected by angelic beings for their own beauty and safety. Unfortunately, greed of mankind has shrunk it. However some movements like Shabnam Resources wish to preserve these sacred groves.



Mr. M.R. Hubert's subject of presentation was that sacred groves create universalism via spirituality cutting across casteism and racism. He emphasized the ownership of these forests extending to city dwellers too, thereby paving the way to protect and maintain them. He said that it should be a point of spiritual tourism and not a picnic spot.  




In India, we tend to throw away debris and spoil the elegance of these forests. We can universalize our understanding to a greater limit on visiting and spending time in these Nature reserves and God-filled, unblemished zones of love.
