Elements of Nature Series: Earth




  • Earth in Sanskrit is prithvi. All Plants, vegetables and fruits spring from the Earth. In Hindu philosophy there is the eternal Earth, which exists in the form of the atom, and perishable Earth, which exists in the form of work. We, symbolically, are perishable. But elements (atoms) are eternal after death. After burial or cremation, atoms are disintegrated and returned to the eternal form.
