"मां घॄदम् कस्यस्विद्ध्नम्" (The Ishavasya Upanishad – 300 to 15- B.C.E.)
Thou shalt not covet any thing that is thy neighbour's. (The Holy Bible - 12 to 2 B.C.E.)
Do not covet the bounties that God has bestowed more abundantly on some of you than on others. (The Holy Qu'ran - 610 - 632 C.E.)

(Bhajan) Dances & Songs

  • Dances & Songs are the celebratory culmination of having the previous four elements successfully in place.
  • They remind people of changes in seasons, lunar cycles, and other community participation events
  • They are also the primary means of transferring auditory information in a fun and participatory manner; quite contrary to the glamour-oriented approach adopted today
  • They codify systems of environmental preservation passed on from generation to generation over thousands of years with little or no modifications
  • Their inextricable link with festivals make them an integral part of local knowledge systems
