Mindless wastage is a sin from the perspective of Universal Law. When we came into existence, a certain amount of material goods was allotted to us. If we use more than we have been allotted, we are committing sin. We must conserve resources for future generations.
Some insects, fish, and animals are already extinct. If this trend continues, humans will also cease to exist.
We must not allow any species to become rare and disappear from the face of the earth. We must breed animals, raise them and then release them into the wild. In zoos, animals must not only be shown to the public, but must also be bred to be released into the wild.
In the same way, we need to take care of different kinds of insects. We need to protect and breed all kinds of plants. We have to save the seeds of all plant life so that no plant species disappears from the face of the earth.
Furthermore, we humans have a responsibility to love water, air, and earth on behalf of the Creator and to preserve them all. Only when we love the environment and all people as the Creator loves them can we regain our original position as masters.
The solution to the ecological problems of our world will not be found through the efforts of scientists, one organization, or one country alone. It will require the sacrifice and cooperation of all the peoples of the world, beyond the interests of individual communities or countries. This spirit of cooperation will only be achieved if all people see themselves as members of one human family. Such a revolutionary change in human consciousness was long overdue, and has now become vital to the survival of humanity.
