About the Project


He is not born, nor does He ever die; after having been, He again ceases not to be; nor the reverse. Unborn, eternal, unchangeable and primeval, He is not slain when the body is slain.

Discourse II, Verse 20, Bhagavad Gita

Indian Hindu philosophy, such the spiritual ideals found in the Vedas and the Bhagavad Gita, revolves around transcendental beliefs and fundamentally relies on nature when seeking truth and spirit. 

These values are mirrored in many of the works of American poet, Walt Whitman (1819-1892), who  famously incorporated the his transcendental beliefs and his admiration for nature into his poems and essays in the late 1800s.
