Green Earth Campaign
Plant endless trees, simply to trap and freeze the Noxious Green House Gases, Guruji himself leads the masses.
The mindless exploitation of natural resources by mankind has imperiled the existence of the planet itself. Increasing pollution, our poisoned rivers, an unstable ocean, the melting glaciers are all aggravated by human thoughtlessness. Guruji has responded to the challenge in a variety of ways. On 15th August, 2009, Guruji led the followers in planting 6.9 million trees. Much prior to this on 29th April, 2007, Guruji had initiated a unique campaign named as ‘Nature Campaign’ in which every follower was enjoined to plant at least 12 trees per annum. It is expected that once to this effort is replicated globally, it shall give a significant impetus to the fight against global warming.
TREE PLANTATION DRIVE
Tree plantation is a harbinger of prosperity. Plants eliminate the pollution and are beneficial for the health, too. This would let our coming generations lead a healthy life. At Dera Sacha Sauda, the motive is not just to plant the saplings but rear them as well. Devotees are also instructed that we must plant trees, but we should ensure that we are able to look after them. The number of saplings planted is immaterial, what matters the most is to pay meticulous attention for their nurture, protection and growth. We must take care of them like we care for our children.
Revered Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan
8 Hours 7 Millions
An obsession with industrial progress has caused man to lose sight of the tenuous ecological balance. The consequences of mindless actions are clear now. Therefore, Revered Saint Dr. Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh Ji Insan has acted to rectify the precarious imbalances. As man closes in on newer scientific discoveries, he is inebriated by his own success. Despite understanding the consequences of his follies on the environment front, mankind is doing too little, too late. Environmental sustainability cannot be recklessly thrown to the wind. We are living undoubtedly, on a poisoned earth. We have undone what nature has taken endless time to create. Our factories and automobiles ooze fire as the carbon footprint builds up. Fishing disturbs the oceans in a variety of ways that we still cannot comprehend. The climate has become fragile and unstable. Global warming is upon us and yet there is a lack of a sincere international consensus on the issue. Greed has become the most important driving force. We are reaping the harvest of several diseases and ill-health due to our poisoned food chain. The developed and developing countries are putting accusing fingers on each other but no sound strategy has been implemented by anyone strongly; whereas, it is the time to take effective steps in this regard. Unmindful of the indifference, Guruji crusades relentlessly towards the goal of saving the planet. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the rivers we pollute, the trees we cut, the greenhouse gases we emit; are all going to affect our children. To summarize, we need to plant the right trees in adequate numbers, move to sustainable green technologies, cut down on chemicals and pollution, save water and manage human waste better. We need to act now or become victims of our Pyrrhic success.
