Zoroastrianism and Ecology

- The material world has been created as a means to help humans  progress. At the end of time, humanity must give it to Ahura Mazda in its original perfect form.
 
- All the creations on the earth are interconnected to each other, and need each other for survival. The faith demands that Zoroastrians love God as well as their fellow creatures.
 
Zoroaster taught his followers to be constantly active in furthering creation, with each human being sharing responsibility for the its progress and prosperity.
 
Humans have been given the responsibility to fight anything that is harmful to the very purpose of creation.

Nature does not hurry.

Shinto tradition acknowledges a deep debt to the blessing of nature and the spiritual power which brings about life, fertility, and prosperity. This life-giving power was called Musubi (divine power of growth), and perceived in all the workings of nature. Since the Japanese people felt the divine within nature, they came to hold the ideal of a life that was in harmony with and united with nature. Mountains peaks, deep valleys, and the wide ocean were viewed as dwellings for the divine, and other natural objects such as evergreen trees and huge rocks were considered to be symbols of divine spirits.
