Guru Nanak Dev Ji, founder of Sikhism and the first of ten Gurus, believes that all humans have an intrinsic sensitivity to a natural world, so everyone should love and show concern for the nature which is also a part of a holistic approach of life. The sacred vision for environment by Sri Guru Nanak Dev Ji is composed as:
“Pavan Guru Pani Pita, Mata Dharat Mahat ”
means Air is the Guru, Water is the Father and The Earth is the Great Mother of all. So, it is our mortal duty to preserve air, water and land.
