Wilderness Preservation

One of the greatest inspirations at Navadarshanam has been the process of natural regeneration of the land - what was barren and degraded land has slowly transformed into a scrub forest and wilderness that supports a host of living creatures including over 200 species of birds, vast array of insects and reptiles, smaller mammals like deer, wild boar, rabbits, mongoose and jungle cats. Small herds of bison and elephant as well as the occasional leopard make this their temporary home. We have a set of principles encapsulated in a code that guides human activities on the land.
