‘Simple Living & High Thinking’ – a principle which is so succinct, yet profound. It formed the basis of life in the bygone age of wisdom. Life in the Vedic times was focused on Service, but not on exploitation; this was the cardinal rule of living and the very essence of people’s dealings – with each other and that with Mother Nature.
With the concepts of eco living being innate, the Vedic lifestyle was truly an eco friendly way of living life as instanced in the timeless Vedic scriptures like Srimad Bhagavatam and Bhagavad-Gita.
Govardhan Eco Village hopes to present this model to the world as an alternative way of lifestyle and perhaps a solution to the impending ecological crisis. At GEV, they are going back to the basics of how life in the villages in India used to be in the vedic times to show how that lifestyle was in line with mother nature and also an aspect of living bhakti.
