People make society, society makes government and government makes law. We need to ensure that the government makes law following the law of Mother Nature. Once we follow this rule, we would truly start following the Yogic way of life, which consists of no maltreatment or cruelty towards animals, support local farming and organic food which drives us to clean & green environment. It couldn’t be the better opportunity to enlighten the global community, amid COVID-19 situation, about the importance of Yoga, Veganism, Vegetarianism, Organic lifestyle, and Environmental awareness. The epicenter of our lifestyle should not be anyone else but our mother- the earth. We can only sustain, thrive, and survive by following the path of originality and that is an organic lifestyle, by respecting all elements of mother nature, which has no participation in cruelty, abuse, or violence in our lives.
