major difference between what is conceived of as a bio-divinity and that of
religious environmentalism. Each of these concepts comes with its own historical
and intellectual lineage. Tomalin adds that while bio-divinity, or divinising nature,
has been a feature of many religio-cultural traditions historically, it is not
synonymous with religious environmentalism, "which involves the conscious
application of religious ...

Biodivinity: The. Encounter. of. Religion. and. Medicine. M. L. Bradbury.
Announcements of surprise at the discovery that religion and medicine can both
legitimately contribute to human health, in ways that frequently intersect, figure as

Nevertheless, much of the literature that deals with this area of environmentalist
thinking depicts religious traditions as inherently “environmentally friendly” (
Gottlieb 1996; Banwari 1992).' In particular, it is argued that religious traditions
teach that the earth is significant beyond its use value to humans (it has “intrinsic
value”) because it is sacred. It is claimed that the recognition of this “bio-divinity
has encouraged people to respect the environment and to be careful in their
treatment of ...

The legends preserved by their poets and hagiographers for several centuries
continue to inspire Bishnois to protect the trees and animals even at the cost of
their personal lives. Most of them are not aware of the Western scientific
discourse about “global warming” or “biodiversity.” For them, their tradition, based
on the words and life of their guru, is the main reason for their environmentalist
activism. This is much beyond the recognition of bio-divinity based on the Hindu
cosmology or ...
