Satish says:

"Soil is the source of all life, literally and metaphorically. All life comes from the mother soil and returns to her. I love soil as my mother and take care of her. Soil contains earth, air, fire and water. She is nature herself. If my outer body is soil, then my inner being is the soul.

As I cultivate the soil to grow food for the body I take care of the soul and cultivate compassion, love, beauty and unity to realise the harmony within and without. When I am at ease within, I am at ease without, I am at ease with the whole of humanity.

Through caring for soil, I am a member of the earth community and through caring for society I am a member of the human community. Billions of people with their diversities of culture and colours are one human family. I suffer with their suffering and I rejoice in their happiness.

Therefore the trinity of Soil, Soul and Society is a way of saying in three words that we are all related, interconnected and interdependent. This is a trinity of wholes and unity of life in its myriad forms."

Help us keep the Ecologist platform going

Since 2012, the Ecologist has been owned and published by a small UK-based charity called the Resurgence Trust. We work hard to support the kind of independent journalism and comment that we know Ecologist readers enjoy but we need your help to keep going. We do all this on a very small budget with a very small editorial team and so joining the Trust or making a donation will show us you value our work and support the platform which is currently offered as a free service.
