Bahai Faith and Environment
The Bahai faith underlines the need for environmental protection. They are committed to the welfare of the Nature. Quoting them: "In many regions of the world, the assault on rain forests and endangered species comes as the poor, legitimately seeking a fair share of the world's wealth, fell trees to create fields. They are unaware that, over the long term and as members of a world community which they know little about, they may be irretrievably damaging rather than improving their children's chances for a better life. Any attempt to protect nature, must, therefore, also address the fundamental inequities between the world's rich and poor." This picture is the Bahai's Lotus Temple in New Delhi, India. It is a very beautiful structure in a more beautiful surrounding with a nice garden encircling it.
