05 Jun Why India has the Moral Obligation to Lead Climate Solutions
“It is time for India to say what she means and mean what she says” – Philip Wollen.
Dear Climate Healer,
India has the moral obligation to step up and lead the ongoing transformation of humanity from Homo Sapiens Sapiens, the “wise, wise hominid,” to Homo Ahimsa, the nonviolent hominid.
Over the past 10,000 years, during the Climate Heating phase of humanity, Europe has taken the lead on implementing the Burning Machine and the Killing Machine that are heating up the planet.
The Burning Machine has been heating up the planet by burning vast amounts of fossil fuels mainly to implement the False Axiom of Consumerism, that happiness is best accomplished by stoking and satisfying a never ending series of latent desires in humans, or the “Greed is Good” rule.
The Killing Machine has been heating up the planet by destroying vast tracts of land to raise animals and to grow crops to feed animals, mainly to implement the False Axiom of Supremacism, that life is a competitive game in which those who have gained an advantage may possess, enslave and exploit animals, nature and the disadvantaged for their pursuit of happiness, or the “Might is Right” rule.
As a result, the earth avoided returning back to an ice age 5000 years ago. However, now, the Killing Machine and the Burning Machine are heating up the planet a little too much. It is time to shut them down and create a sustainable Climate Healing civilization based on the correct axioms of Inner Peace and Unity.
The Axiom of Inner Peace states that the pursuit of happiness is best accomplished by looking for it within ourselves, or the Self-Mastery rule.
The Axiom of Unity states that all life is one family where we each bring our unique gifts to give all we can, receive all we need and become all we are, or the Vitality Code rule.
The Axiom of Inner Peace is precisely implemented in the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali.
The Axiom of Unity is precisely “Vasudhaiva Kutumbakam” and it best implemented through the principles of Ahimsa or nonviolence, as described in the Upanishads.
Shouldn’t India take the lead for implementing a sustainable Climate Healing civilization based on Yoga and Ahimsa?
And that’s precisely what India is stepping up to do.
Last Friday, I was tapped to be a Keynote speaker for a confluence of university Vice-Chancellors and state Cabinet Ministers in Coimbatore, India, Jul 13-16, all vying to host the world’s first University of Sustainability founded on a blend of the ancient principles of Yoga and Ahimsa with modern compassionate Science. To top it all, the organizers will be honoring our granddaughter, Kimaya for demanding that I do my job and engineer a Vegan world for her generation by 2026.
We will be premiering our new documentary, “The Land of Ahimsa,” during the event. Please contribute to our Indiegogo campaign as soon as possible so that we can complete the finishing touches to the documentary before the premiere.
Please stay tuned for more details. Meanwhile, please don’t hesitate to join us. Let’s make this greatest transformation in human history happen sooner rather than later.
Heal the planet.
It’s that simple.
All the best,
Sailesh Rao on behalf of Vega, Cow and Climate Healer and the Climate Healers team.
