    A beutiful animal world there in the video. Indeed a rare feast of view of our jungle animal world there. I don’t want to derive any moral lessons there. Who told our baffalows are timid and dull? Who told our lions are aggressive and firy? It’s all our own projections and predictions. The animal world there moves on a different paradigm of intelligence – unbelievable! Watching the live natual and animal world is more worth and life-transforming than listening to the dead holy sermons and scriptures. Now it’s time to learn the lost beauty of life from the animal world, rather than from the ‘guru world, holy world, scripture world, sermon world’!

    great observation, sulochanosho!

    Now that you mention it, I recall a related point.

    In the natural world, we see the behaviour of deer or zebra or buffalo, when they’re in danger of a predator, they keep the young towards the inside in a relatively more secure area.

    Yet a common sight on the road is that we often see people walking with kids, sometimes really tiny tots, who are walking on the side of the traffic.

    Its not that drivers want to be savage like lions, but common sense tells us that from a driver’s point of view, its easy to see an adult but not always as easy to see a kid walking beside him or her! So the rushing traffic is as dangerous if not more as the savage lions for these kids.

    And as you have highlighted, we must seriously question: where has this natural protective instinct in these adults got lost?

    So I have to agree that we certainly can learn about the lost beauty of life from the animal world!

    (I think guru world is too generic, there are good gurus who want to make help very transparently way without causing any sense of obligation, and other gurus who want to say words more to gratify than to actually help, so can’t compare. Also in most cases gurus just want to share some simple ideas, but its ‘disciples’ who get so carried away that they do something worse than “shoot the messenger” – they “worship the messenger” :mrgreen: !! )

    More about nature…

    “Consider this: all the ants on the planet, taken together, have a biomass greater than that of humans. Ants have been incredibly industrious for millions of years, yet their productiveness nourishes plants, animals and soil. Human industry has been in full swing for little more than a century, yet it has brought about a decline in almost every ecosystem on the planet. Nature doesn’t have a design problem. People do. The endgame appears to have been to create a world in which we have no real idea of the effects of the chemicals we’re using, on us or the environment, combined with the large-scale and inequitable use of natural resources. But that was then – people thought they were doing the right thing. Today is another day.”
