In our culture, the elements of religion are considered to be the values of life. In order to maintain a proper balance all the religions, castes & communities, it is essential that man’s life should have three important elements in it that are mentioned in our scriptures. Throwing more light on the importance of nature & environment, Prof. Sharma stated that it is clearly mentioned in our ancient scriptures that men should protect and conserve the unlimited treasures of nature & should contribute to the constructive development of it.
