Importance of Earth Day

Earth Day is celebrated in over 175 countries. The U.N. designated April 22nd as International Mother Earth Day in 2009. The Radha Krishna Temple of Dallas is proud to be part of this effort by playing a small part in our own community in the City of Allen to celebrate Earth Day with conducting a Community Litter Cleanup and Sustainability Fair on April 13th, 2024.

Significance from a Scriptural Perspective

In the Hindu culture, Mother Earth is worshipped as Bhumi Devi. One reason that Hindus see representations of the divine in rivers, mountains, elements of nature, and even plants and animals, stems from the belief that God resides in every living creature (Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 10).
