The divine guiding light: Saint Guru Jambheshwar : Guru Jambheshwar Ji was a saint who envisioned in fifteenth century the need of saving nature and initiated the sect to preach and follow the path of harmonious growth with the nature. His Twenty-Nine Commandments became the Bible for human growth and conservation of biodiversity. His commandments included directions for healthy social behaviour, personal hygiene and maintaining good basic health, and worshipping God. His teaching included compassion towards nature and protection of life as the supreme religious goal. He founded the Bishnoi sect in 1485 AD. He expounded his religious philosophy and the essence of these principles in the form of verses. These are distinguished by their vivid and conversational style and moral exhortation. Guru Jambheshwar Ji achieved `Nirvana’ in 1536 in village Lalasar District Bikaner, Rajasthan.
