Vedanta, Ecology, and Evolution
Swami Mahayogananda

The earth now sup­ports over sev­en bil­lion human beings. We are push­ing up against the lim­its of the biosphere’s abil­i­ty to sus­tain us. Swa­mi Mahayo­ganan­da dis­cuss­es the eco­log­i­cal cri­sis from the Vedan­tic view­point, and sug­gests that the solu­tion must come through the spir­i­tu­al evo­lu­tion of human­i­ty.
