Amidst the coronavirus pandemic worldwide, as humankind, many understood that we have neglected and polluted Mother Nature and misused our powers as human beings. When production factories shut down, we have seen the pollution levels worldwide falling, the ozone healing and the majestic himalayan mountain region becoming clear in punjab, India.
For the aboriginals in Australia, Mother Nature and Mother Earth are part and parcel of their being. They have a profound spiritual connection to land. Aboriginal law and spirituality are intertwined with the land, the people and creation, and this forms their culture and sovereignty. 
For the Chinese, in ancient Chinese philosophy or Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) theories, holistic or oneness with the whole is one of the key principles. In TCM theories, they often refer to changes in the climate etc in relation to humans as they believe that man is part and parcel of the entire creation.
For the Indians, the Sanskrit term Yoga means union, union with the entire universe. Yoga is a common exercise in many countries. However, the essence of Yoga is to acheive one’s union or one’s Yoga. For that, one needs to be in a state of thoughtless awareness.
From these traditional principles and ideologies, people have love and respect Mother Nature for they believe that we do not own the land, the air that we breathe nor the rivers that run and Mother Nature is deemed as sacred. The Earth and the living beings were created from the creator right from the start of creation but for economic gains and materialism, we damage the Mother Earth, ignore the damages and continue to damage the creator’s creations time and again.
Scientific researches have found that it is highly probable that covid-19 is a result of animal to human transmission of the virus. With the tiger in New York’s zoo being infected by its zookeeper, human to animal transimission of the virus shows the breadth of its infectivity. 
Amongst all these happenings, have we pondered about the origins of all type of viruses? According to Dr D Wessner, viruses may represent previously free-living organisms that became parasites. They may be the precursors of life as we know it.  From this understanding, viruses are part and parcel of the creation.
Let us apply the traditional wisdoms in modern times by establishing our connection with Mother Nature, with the creator and seek Her forgiveness, keeping our attention more frequently on the nature and praying with utmost sincerity for the virus to return to where it came from.
