HAVE WE EVER WONDERED WHAT MIGHT BE THE REASON FOR SUCH IRRELEVANT CLIMATE CHANGES?? ANSWER TO THIS QUESTION IS "WE" HUMANS

Due to development of civilization, man now needs to be guilty about his activities causing damage to this nature.

In Ayurveda we get references about prayers before cutting any twigs from the plants.

These are the references from Ayurveda which tell us the effects of human activities on this nature.

Ayurveda not only teaches us how to live healthy but also how to live harmoniously with this nature.

It is important to upgrade our view on this. Now global warming is the major problem. Seeing the season it is the right time to discuss on this problem.

In above verse Ayurveda says when the symptoms according to the rutus happen in a wrong manner it should be understood that this season will give rise to diseases and devastation.

Also there are references which mention that such disruptive Climate change leads to severe drought and floods, untimely weather resulting in the destruction of human civilization.

Ayurveda - Nature - Disease

जनपदोध्वंस in Ayurveda mainly explains about impact of undue human activities to nature.

Dinacharya and Rtucharya (daily and seasonal regimen) explains a nature friendly lifestyle.

Global environmental hazards to human health include climate change, stratospheric ozone depletion, changes in ecosystems due to loss of biodiversity, changes in hydrological systems and the supplies of freshwater, land degradation, urbanization, and stresses on food-producing systems.

As a result new pandemics and new diseases are rising Even simple viruses are becoming more virulent. Because of the pollution incident of genetic disorders, metabolic disorders and Malignant diseases are becoming very common. Now even cancer has become very common disease.

How to Approach???

Understanding of global warming in Ayurveda
वाताज्जलं जलाद्देशं देशात् कालं स्वभावतः।
विद्याद्दुष्परिहार्यत्वात् गरीयस्तरमर्थवित्॥

These two lines explain the total process of global warming Air, Water or Land, Climate or Time pollution (everything happens untimely like untimely rain etc on the earth and Untimely aging, death etc in humans) It becomes more and more complex and difficult to cure as we move from air to Time.

Consequences

Melting of glaciers, changes like untimely rains, draught, potent cyclones etc.

How to save ourselves from the effect of this janapadodhwans ???

Following rutucharya,dinacharya-daily and seasonal regime
Following sadvrutta-ethics of life
Due to excessive climate change, when medicines don't help we have to approach to panchakama treatments mentioned in Ayurveda.
Later rasayan treatment –rejuvenating treatments are mentioned in Ayurveda.
